Born 1980 in the Philippines, Buen CALUBAYAN studied advertising and cultural heritage at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila. He has spent much of his career exploring the subject of his personal and the Filipino identity through a variety of media, including painting, sculpture and conceptual pieces. His focus on the personal and the cultural have blurred over time. And in recent years, the artist has shifted his attention to explore the act of viewing and its possibilities.
