Glenn Romasanta

THE YEARNING

Glenn was born in Manila, Philippines and his parents immigrated to Canada in 1972.

As the youngest of six, he was often left with his imagination. He could be found drawing and creating his own world underneath the kitchen table or in his dad’s workshop.

Growing up, he was always involved in art, especially painting. After high school, he decided to go to college and become a graphic artist in advertising and get his degree at Seneca College of Art and Design. After a brief taste of the industry, Glenn made the decision to follow his bliss and live the life of an artist. Painting has always been a way to express his thoughts and emotions. Ever since a mad crush with his grade one teacher, Glenn knew painting would be his voice.
