Tinggal dan bekerja di Manila, Singson belum lama ini lulus sebagai sarjana seni lukis dari University of the Philippines, Dilliman. Sejak masa kuliah ia telah secara konsisten bekerja dengan bahan gerabah terakota di bawah arahan profesor / keramikus Rita Badilla Gudiño. Gerabah dipergunakan Singson sebagai bagian dari lukisan, terutama dari lempung lokal batog, dengan menghadirkan kesan relief dan citra bangunan rusak terbengkalai. Singson bekerja dalam retorika konseptual yang khas dan dibagi dengan banyak perupa Filipina lainnya, di mana bahan dimaknai dan dipergunakan seiring menyusuri dinamika terprosesnya sendiri. Dalam arahan ini, ia sering mengetengahkan bentuk narasi dalam sejarah personal atau lokal lewat bahasa benda dan material, yang senantiasa berupaya untuk memperluas makna pengalaman masa kini lewat penelusuran rasa memiliki.

Jose Luis Singson terpilih melalui proses open call. Ia  menjalankan program residensi JCCB4 di Jatiwangi Art Factory, pada November 2016.

Living and working in Manila, Singson only recently graduated as MFA in Paintings from the University of the Philippines, Dilliman. Since studying, he has consistently working with terracotta, mainly under the guidance of professor and ceramicist Rita Badilla Gudiño. Terracotta was used by Singson as part of paintings, especially those made from local batog clay, providing an impression of derelict buildings and that of a sculptural relief. Singson works in a particular conceptual rhetoric uniquely shared among Filipino artists, in which materials are given meanings and utilised while being reflected upon thoroughly. In such manner, Singson often centers a form of narrative via personal and local history of objects, and material, while consistently attempting to broaden the interpretation of contemporary experience with regard to how our sense of belonging able to develop and overarch.

 Jose Luis Singson was chosen through open call for JCCB4 residency program. He did his residency in Jatiwangi Art Factory, November 2016.
