We first asked Marc Abasolo if he is an artist by profession after he sent us his art pieces. But we were surprised when he said that he is a businessman, and he draws and paints cars as a hobby. 

“Cars are a big source of inspiration to me, and whenever I draw, it’s more than just laying down different kinds of medium on a clear board,” shared Marc. “It’s my way of ‘writing’ down a dream and prayer for me, but instead of words, I draw them.”
