During my online chat with Philippine artist Mek Yambao she mentioned exploring random ideas and stories in her art. Although this sounds rather spontaneous, she still bases her work on main interests like nature, eroticism, spirituality, and existence. “I’ve always been intrigued by altered states and the multiverse so I explore them through my creative process. It serves as a tool to discover thoughts and concepts occurring in the absence of thought and awareness.”
Her mixed-media art includes both oil painting and ink doodles on wood panels. “Aside from wood having a compatible acidity level with paints, I also find that it reinforces nature element in a piece.”
