Speedy Jimi T: Best of Watercolor

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedin

Jimmy TablanteJimmy Tablante is a Filipino artist who has conquered Hawaii, his chosen home since he moved to the beautiful paradise in May 1985.

A graduate of Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Santo Tomas in Manila, this Filipino has had the opportunity to work for several local and international architectural firms as a designer and a renderer.

He earned the nickname “Speedy Jimi T.” because of his ability to produce and submit renderings before deadlines.  In 1988, he was given one of the best opportunities in his life when the architecture firm Hemmeter Design Group recognized his outstanding ability and sent him to study at Harvard University in Cambridge. His diligence paid off when he was awarded the Graduate School of Design / Advanced Architectural Delineation.

With his excellent architectural background, it was only natural that he would transition to the world of Visual Arts. He took the challenge by enrolling at Linekona Academy of Arts in order to broaden his knowledge in the various aspects of  the visual arts.

In May 2011, he became a signature member of the Hawaii Watercolor Society.

Here are the awards and recognition received by “Speedy Jimi T.”
