Philip Sabado’s art education began where he was raised on the island of Molokai. As the youngest of nine children, his mother always put aside enough money for colors and paper for the young artist.

After serving in the army he returned to Honolulu to attend The Honolulu Academy of Art. In 1976 he chose to study art comprehensively in California and attended the prestigious Art Center College of Design as well as the Otis Parsons Institute of Design, both in Los Angeles.

In 1980 he was selected as a member of the prestigious Los Angeles Society of Illustrators. He was also selected as well as one of the top fifty illustrators in the United States and was chosen to study at Columbia University in Paris.

Philip now has his studio and art school on Maui. He has been commissioned for many art works and murals. For more information and to see Philips art work please visit his web site www.sabadostudios.com
