Multimedia major Rax Mercado has been an artist, first getting into drawing and painting as a kid. Growing up, though, he discovered other art styles and mediums and started to delve into traditional and digital art.

As a creative, it’s essential for Rax to be open to new art forms and styles in order to grow. “I would describe myself as an experimental artist wherein I try to do new things, explore different forms of art and take risks in order for me to express myself and inspire the people around me," he says.
