|Born 1967, in Philippines. Bernardo Pacquing’s mixed-media assemblages and abstract paintings harken back to the midcentury tradition of blurring art and life.Inspired by the overlooked traces of urban life, he creates using unglamorous everyday materials and arranges them in his paintings with surprising ease.His paintings tell a very clear story of basic simplicity where life in an urban environment is devoid of colour and nature, save for a little glimpses of vibrancy.
