More popularly known as Pogs, Reynaldo Samson’s training in college was in the financial industry. Though he graduated with a degree in banking in finance from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines in 2003, his passion for art which runs through his blood, having artist brothers, prevailed as he embarked on an artistic career after graduation. In 2009, he was one of the Top 10 Regional Winners for the Philippine Art Award sponsored by Philip Morris. Exhibitions include Barok Period, Boston Gallery (2013), Metaphysical Allegories, Boston Gallery (2014), and Distrongka, Pintô Art Gallery (2013).
His paintings are humorous depictions of scenes that combine figures from popular culture, animation, spiritual leaders, politicians and other iconic personalities in a sort of fantasy world reminiscent of science-fiction films. His images illustrate in a playful way the heroes and personalities of our time, and poke fun on the follies of Philippine society.
