Frederick Epistola is an acclaimed visual artist hailing from the Philippines known for his innovative and diverse body of work that delves into a wide array of human experiences, cultural narratives, and personal identities. His artistic journey began at a young age and flourished as he pursued a Visual Communication degree at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts. With a career spanning two decades, Epistola has showcased his paintings, sculptures, and video art on an international platform, captivating audiences and encouraging them to explore themes of space, time, and cultural interconnectedness through a creative lens.

Dedicated to nurturing emerging talents, Epistola serves as a mentor to young artists and actively participates in various Filipino cultural initiatives. His artistic merit has been recognized through prestigious grants such as the Sentro Rizal Cultural Diplomacy Grant and the Competitive Travel Grant from the National Commission on Cultures and Arts, both in 2019 and 2022. Noteworthy international involvements include serving as the Filipino Representative for the Arts at the XIV Florence Biennale in Italy, exhibiting at the Salon du shopping d'art inside Le Caroussel du Louvre in Paris under the representation of the Macenavie Gallery, and being a part of the Kunst Filipino Viaje 2 EuroKunstausstellungsprogramm delegation across Europe.

Additionally, he was chosen as one of the five Filipino delegates for an art residency program that was sponsored by the Philippine Embassy in Rabat, Morocco, in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Philippines-Morocco Diplomatic Relations. His captivating works were showcased at the prestigious Abla Ababou Galerie' in Rabat, where he also conducted an art workshop at the Université Internationale de Rabat (UIR) during the duration of this program.
