Flor Baradi

Flor Baradi

Born: 1968

Hometown: Butuan City, Agusan del Norte

Based in: Manila

Flor Baradi is an artist born and based in the Philippines.

She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Santo Tomas in 1991.

Heavily influenced by literature and the natural world, Baradi’s art echoes the wild and remote marshes of Agusan, Mindanao where she grew up in. She specializes in creating highly-detailed flora and fauna illustrations and paintings. Her training as a jewelry designer proved useful in rendering the intricate details of her artworks. Her landscapes, animals, and objects are rendered to each minute detail, each one rife with hidden details, messages, and symbols.

Baradi works with a variety of mediums and is currently experimenting with acrylics on layers of polyester films. She has already participated in more than 30 group shows and had her second solo show in 2012.

ARTIST STATEMENT
“Follow your obsessions mercilessly.”
Using nature and literature as fuel for my creative process, I compose imaginary landscapes, mutated beasts and anthropormorphized plants by continuously making sketches and by photocopying, cutting and juxtaposing images.

Inspired by Gothic novels, Lovecraftian characters, Victorian oddities, science fiction, and native folklore, my canvases are visual storybooks reflecting my penchant for the bizarre, the arcane and the macabre.
