Ivy Pangilinan (b. 1990) is a visual artist and graphic designer whose body of work includes spirited abstract paintings of remarkable colors, textured marks, thick solid strokes, and thin wobbly scratches —a dichotomy between the rules of design and the carefreeness of abstract expressionism. Overall, her work is a visual narrative of intuitive balance that can be summed up by two main languages: color and contrast. Color that conveys emotions through the experimentation in hue combinations; contrasts expressed through the juxtaposition of all the above elements. Ivy studied design and branding at The School of Visual Arts in New York. Her practice is inspired by the natural world, spirituality, and the vibrancy of life.
