LJ Navera for Arts Talk PH

LJ Navera (b. 1983) is a musician, multidisciplinary artist, and artisan. He paints, tattoos, crafts, and plays a multitude of musical instruments including the didgeridoo. LJ is also a sound healer and a mental health + substance abuse awareness advocate. Hitting rock bottom and recovering from his own 20-year battle with depression hugely influenced his body of work which often reflects his own introspections and emotions rather than that of his subjects. The minimal use of colors in his paintings serves to highlight the rawness of his constantly changing themes.

“I believe that nothing is impossible as long as I put my mind and heart to it and use my basic formula: desire, learn, and execute.”
