Christopher Saclolo is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores the scholarship of Filipino American identity through intricate paintings and artist’s books as media with applications in cultural discourse. The work often addresses his own biography in relationship to his Filipino heritage and U.S. upbringing. Filipino/American diaspora, post-colonial Filipino American identity, and syncretic cultures are the conceptual narratives of his current visual explorations. His works are carefully crafted that playfully seek to parallel Filipino patterns to the multi-layered cultural identities of Filipino Americans.

He earned a Master’s of Fine Arts degree at Columbia College Chicago in 2013. Saclolo’s work have been supported by Follett Fellowship at Columbia College Chicago, The Caxton Club Scholarship by The Newberry Library, and The Joyce Foundation at Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago.
