Pat Abella is a self-taught watercolour visual artist from Manila. His works revolve around nostalgic portraits of ladies incorporated with flora and fauna embellished with gold leaf to show empowerment and hope for his viewers.
He has been part of several exhibitions in Manila such as "Daluyong", "Going Once, Going Twice" and "Proof of Life", all under Pineapple Lab Gallery.
Learned a lot, loved the setup and was perfect respite from the weekly grind!
