About The ARTIST

Frederick Epistola is a multi-disciplinary Filipino visual artist celebrated for his experimental and diverse artwork, which explores various human experiences, cultural backgrounds, and identities. Epistola's love for art began early in life, which led him to pursue a degree in Visual Communication from the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts. Over the last twenty years, he has successfully exhibited his paintings, sculptures, and video art on the global stage, inspiring diverse audiences to think creatively about space, time, and cultural connections. Epistola supports young artists as a mentor and is actively involved in several Filipino cultural programs. He has received grants for his artistic achievements, including the Sentro Rizal Cultural Diplomacy Grant and the Competitive Travel Grant from the National Commission on Cultures and Arts in 2019 and in 2022.

He is the Rappresentante Filippino per Le Arti at the XIV Florence Biennale in Florence, Italy, and he exhibited inside the Le Caroussel du Louvre at the Salon du shopping d'art in Paris which is represented by the Macenavie Gallery in France. He is also part of the Kunst Filipino Viaje 2 Euro-Kunstausstellungsprogramm delegation that travels Europe, specifically to Germany, Italy, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. In 2024, four of Epistola's abstract paintings were exhibited alongside renowned contemporary Filipino artists in the Hiraya Gallery-organized exhibit Zeitgenossische Malereidon Philippinen at Ranthaus Hanau in Hanau, Germany.

Epistola is the founder and head curator of Art Show Philippines, the leading online platform for Filipino artists.
