Faye Abantao is a visual artist who was born and raised in Bacolod, Negros Occidental. She collects and deconstructs archival prints and expands with a cluster of disciplines which includes origami, digital collage, image transfer and painting. The artist’s multifold process emanates an interplaying mixture of contents, patterns and images.
Jao San Pedro is a visual artist and interdisciplinary designer working on the intersection of the body and its performativities, spanning movement, imaging, textile, and installation. Her recent explorations examine the body and its capacity to process, break down, transgress, and transgender binary code and structure.
Hannah Nantes is a visual artist based in Antipolo City and an alumna of UP Fine Arts. Through expressive figurative paintings and atmospheric assemblages, her imagery tackles the absurdity of the mundane as well as existential anxieties. She often uses found objects to challenge the passivity in direct images and uses their histories, associations, and presence to negotiate with conflict, both personal and in society.
Derek Tumala is a visual artist that works with the moving image, emerging technologies and industrial materials. Tumala often uses the ambiguity of experience and knowledge in his practice to explore personal politics, interconnectedness, cosmic and scientific thinking.
Alwin Reamillo is an multi-disciplinary artist based in Las Piñas City. His artistic practice encompasses mixed media works, paintings, sculptures, installation art, video art and performance art.
