Mek Yambao (°1989) lives and works in Manila, Philippines. She earned a bachelor’s degree in painting from University of Santo Tomas College of Fine Arts and Design in Manila. Her works are oil paintings that are predominantly intersected with surreal automatic drawings on wood; this is in consideration of having a compatible acidity level with paints, and also reinforcing the natural element in her pieces. Themes of nature, introspection, multiverse, and feminism are central to her work. Further developing her art, she is expanding her media across painting and installation.
