The following is from the artist:

Junn Roca (born 1948) has been a professional artist for more than thirty years. Influenced by his father who was also an artist, Roca began his career in his native Philippines at the age of twenty, where he was apprenticed to the noted Filipino artist Felix Gonzales. Roca came to the United States in 1979, and soon began a long and successful career in the animation industry. In 1995, he was nominated for an Emmy award for his contribution to the show, WHERE IN THE WORLD IS CARMEN SAN DIEGO? Then in 1997, he received an EMMY for his contribution to Steven Spielberg’s ANIMANIACS, and again in 1998, he was honored with an EMMY for PINKY AND THE BRAIN.

Although, highly successful in the field of animation, Roca is now happily returning to his first true passion, fine art painting. His experience as a background artist in film has given him an innate sense of staging the subjects of his paintings and organizing the elements within the field of vision to capture a mood or emotion with great effect. An avid preservationist, Roca is a member of the Los Angeles Conservancy, and records the historic theaters and architectural structures of Los Angeles and surrounding areas.

Junn Roca is an Artist Member of the prestigious California Art Club, established in 1909, and Oil Painters of America.

Note from Frannie Roca: On May 3, 2003 Junn garnered Award of Excellence for Figurative in the International Salon sponsored by Greenhouse Fine Art Gallery,
San Antonio, TX and Merit Award for his painting “After the Rain” at the Oil Painters of America National Juried Exhibition in Taos, NM.
