New Directions : Faye Abantao

“When people see my work, it's new to them. It's not the usual oil or acrylic on canvas. It’s paper, it's something new.”

Faye Abantao is a young artist from Bacolod City in the Philippines whose work combines the manipulated images of the digital and the tactile quality of a traditional material, paper. Folded by hand, she finds that using it gives a vulnerable, almost fragile, quality to her art.

Watch for the Negros Season of Culture feature on Negrense artists Daryl Feril, Faye Abantao and Christoph Sagemuller this February 2021, in celebration of National Arts Month by the NCCA (National Commission for Culture and Arts.)
