Biography

(b. 1982, Isabela, Philippines) 

From his first show in 2006 onward, and despite its fragmentary albeit figural nature, there’s always been a very strong narrative undercurrent in the work of Allan Balisi. Beggars Fortress, his latest one man show, is no less fragmented, no less drawn from personal history and no less given over to the pursuit of the elusive stories under the image. Solo exhibitions include Five Paintings at Blanc Gallery, Mirages at Silverlens, Manila and We are Awake Elsewhere at Richard Koh Fine Art, Singapore. He has been short-listed for the 2009 and 2013 Ateneo Art Awards.
