Joseph the Artist's Biography:
Joseph is very interested in drawing ever since he was young. Joseph’s education was a struggle, he wanted to pursue a fine arts degree in college but due to financial problems as his father is a carpenter he was advised to enroll for a practical vocational course. Though he was taking an electrical course he continues to draw that is being appreciated by classmates, schoolmates and teachers.

Joseph uses his talent to help family finances by submitting his work of art to comic publishing house. Salary is still insufficient so he also works as a part-time shoemaker assistant in a neighborhood shoe shop. Because of his polio-stricken legs he has been teased by neighbors and because of all those laugh from his neighbors he dreamt that they would look up to him someday.

Joseph began his sand art after the Ondoy typhoon incident. He was sifting dirt and sand because their home was among those thousands who had suffered the rage of the typhoon when he realized that he can make something out of those sands.

Joseph joined Talentadong Pinoy, He is not aiming to win by that time. All he thinks is he could bring something home for his family. But Joseph has a very special God given talent that he has been a champion for eight times already. By that time to be a part of the Talentadong Pinoy Hall of Fame, you must be able to win straight nine times. At the night of the supposedly nine times competition he lose over Cedie a singer.

But then a new rule was implemented and it was the 8-win rule so Joseph the artist was back to the competition and belongs to the Talentadong Pinoy Hall of Famer and is announced as the Ultimate Talentadong Pinoy 2011.
