Gabby Prado Is a Straight Shooter

  • by The Cartellino Team

Prado (b. 1995) is a visual artist from Manila who narrates her aesthetic journey in a series of paintings derived from her experiences with her hearing disability. Prado incorporates various personal audio recordings as part of the artworks themselves, creating a synesthetic experience for her audience. Her paintings are accompanied by various curated sound snippets that are similarly bold and emotional with heavily expressionistic visuals, giving a preview of her growing artistic narratives.


Her solo show curated by Gwen Bautista, Breakfast, is ongoing at Galerie Stephanie.
