Tiongco truly believes that, in his late age of 66 years, God gifted him with a “talent” to transpose His creation into art and canvas so that men may learn to know that God loves each one of them immensely.   He is now 79 years old and after an absence of almost 7 years from the art scene, Orly T. as he is known to his friends, is back for his Fourth Art Exhibit, “To Share A Gift of God”, at my favorite eating hub - Chef Jessie Rockwell Club in Makati City starting November 4, 2017, culminating on November 30, 2017.
