Paulo Vinluan

Paulo Vinluan (b.1980) exhibits a graphic, narrative and experimental style in his paintings, merging thematic complexity with creative clarity.

Vinluan graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in painting at the College of Fine Arts, Univeristy of the Philippines Diliman in 2003, and from the Pratt Institute, New York, in 2009. In 2003, he was recognised as a finalist in both the Philip Morris Philippine Art Awards and the 20th Metrobank Young Painter’s Annual (watercolor category). His first solo show, Speck, was launched at Finale Art File’s SM Megamall space when he graduated a year later in 2004. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
