Who would have thought that a brilliant electrical engineer could later discover that the right side of his brain develops equally as the left? And YES! It is indeed possible. Yel Cast is one of the country's emerging visual artist who is also an electrical engineer. He got his degree in electrical engineering from the University of the East, and here is a cool fact - he ranked first place in the registered master electrician licensure exam before even finishing his undergrad! 


In 2010, Yel's passion for visual arts was ignited when he joined a national art contest (Metrobank Art and Design Competition) wherein his masterpieces "Dahon ng Buhay (2010)" and "Grand Prize (2012)" qualified as semi-finalist. From then on, Yel commits himself to do what he loves - PAINTING. His talent is innate, in fact, he is self-taught. Most of his works express gratefulness, love of life, positive change, freedom, and dreams without limits. His works can easily be distinguished by colorful and texturized real-leaf patterns. 


Interestingly, Yel uses his talents not just to show the positivity of life, but also as an extraordinarily amazing tool to help people in need. Last year, he sold a number of paintings that directly benefited those children victimized by the war in Marawi City (check out the story by clicking here). He has been featured in CNN Philippines and also included in the country's 40 under 40 by



A proud Batangueno, Yel is a member of Grupo Sining Batangueno, Art Association of the Philippines, Arte Kalye, STC Guhit and Art’e Bauan. He has the vision to become the first motivational visual artist in the country and to establish a Filipino Art Foundation for out-of-school youth.



Yel is currently one of the Funding Partners of the LITD Alliance. Through his leaf art pieces, he embarks the journey with us in bringing about sustainable energy & development to the remote indigenous peoples' community in the Philippines.
