A Bachelor of Arts graduate in Communication from Miriam College, Philippines, Pamela Gotangco Hupp is an advocate of alternative communication through relevant artistic media. She found painting to be the most compelling. She characterizes her style as figurative, feminine and arbitrary, oftentimes bordering on socio-political arguments. A proponent of equal opportunity for women, she also draws insight from the role of women in our present society. Sometimes her work can be seen as self-portraiture of her private life using iconic female figures. Working in layers, she incorporates motifs drawn from both her own life experience and people around her. Her main focus is to engage the viewer to sense a connection in her subject matter and provoke discussion.
Now based in Zurich, painting professionally since 2010, Pamela’s work has been well received with several solo and group shows in Switzerland and abroad. Adding to her accolades are numerous digital displays of her work in locations such as Times Square New York in 2012, art fairs such as Art Basel Miami in 2013, in famous galleries such as Saatchi Gallery London in 2013. She has also participated in prestigious art fairs such as Art Shopping in Carrousel du Louvre in Paris, SCOPE Basel 2016, Art International Zurich and Manila Art 2015 where her work was sold out. Her work was most recently showcased in 2017 at the 7th World Peace Forum Filipino Contemporary Artists in Switzerland.
