ARTIST

Yeo Kaa

Known for her eye-candy colours and figuration style reminiscent of cartoons and animations, Yeo Kaa is a young Filipino artist whose themes and subjects in her work contrast sharply from the pop vibe evoked by her imagery. A graduate of Advertising from the College of the Holy Spirit in Manila, she has exhibited widely in the Philippines and has participated in international residencies, in Jogjakarta, Indonesia, and Haukijarvi, Finland. She is particularly interested in dark themes such as depression, suicide, and anxiety, among others, both drawn from personal experiences as well as general observations of human tendencies.

For her presentation at Asia Now Paris the artist will present an installation comprising a range of small scale paintings and works on paper produced on her recent A3 PROJECTS SUMMER RESIDENCY in Berlin.
