Jacob Lindo


About The Artist

Jacob Lindo works in the areas of drawing, collage and sculpture. While pursuing his degree at Far Eastern University (Philippines) in Fine Arts and majoring in advertising, he was shortlisted for the finals of the Shell National Students' Art Competition in both oil painting and sculpture categories. He has participated in group exhibitions in Manila since his graduation in 2010 and has also had five solo exhibitions to-date. He is drawn to things that feed his curiosity like obscure movies and thought-provoking pieces of literature. In the medium of collage, he achieves striking compositions with fragmentary shapes, fluid lines and vague objects by virtue of their mutability when combined, rather than from startling juxtaposition. Form and content interweave to produce persistently quiet works in monochromatic registers. The interchange between his mediums and their associated formal strategies is agile and intelligent. Sculpture becomes wall-bound, drawing becomes material for collage, and collage acquires the thinking and formal capabilities of drawing as well as the potential for sculptural experiments.

Culturally diverse, The Philippines is about a complex mix of identities which have been significantly influenced by hundreds of years of colonial rule under Spain followed by almost fifty years under the United States of America.
