Henrielle Baltazar Pagkaliwangan lives and works in Cavite, Philippines. Drawing on the composition and aesthetic qualities immanent in natural history illustrations, she explores the narratives behind both the mundane and indispensable objects to document and examine our history and material culture. Using pen and ink and watercolor as her primary medium, Henrielle creates illustrations of objects arranged in specific schemes of order that depict how the numerous configurations of categorization of our everyday items form narratives that reflect our knowledge and experiences, which may either be personal or collectively shared. An active member of the Association of Pinoyprintmakers (A/P), she also works with monotype and drypoint prints.
Henrielle received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of the Philippines-Diliman in 2015. She won the Grand Prize in the Don Papa Rum Art Competition which granted her a one-month residency in Florence, Italy. Her work has been exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Taiwan.
