Carlo Gabuco is an artist who seeks to portray the elusive and disturbing images of the times: scenes missed by the wide scope of media.
 
Gabuco has held annual one-man exhibitions of his paintings since his first one-man show at the Cultural Cnter of the Philippines in 2008 and has participated in group exhibitions across the Philippines, Malaysia, South Korea, England. After emerging as a finalist in the 2006 Philippine Art Awards, he completed a series of artist residencies at Casa San Miguel in Zambales, Philippines (2007), Project Space PIlipinas (2008), HOM in Kuala Lumpur (2009), NEAR Dangsan in South Korea (2009) and The Artesan Gallery + Studio in Singapore (2011). Gabuco holds a degree in Fine Arts (Painting) from the Philippine Women's University. He currently lives and works in Manila.
