Report

My painting process articulates what cannot be depicted in recognizable form.

Presentation & Biography

Sio Montera is a visual-artist from the Philippines. His own brand of process-oriented abstraction narrates the sights, interactions, and experiences that are masterfully translated onto the canvas using acrylics and non-traditional tools. He experiments with industrial processes that lend an esoteric yet grounded feel to his paintings. The artist finds it essential to dissociate the process of image-making from any preconceived idea, thus createing non-representational art that are characterized by open color fields, excoriated layers, and gestural marks of varying intensity. The artist has an MFA in painting and a PhD in  creative industries design.
