Juan Carlo Calma Wikipedia
Juan Carlo Calma (born 22 May 1981) is a newly-emerging young Filipino visual artist and architect. He lives and works in Makati City in the Philippines. He has been called "one of the Philippines’ bright young stars in architecture, interior design and visual arts."
With a pedigree from a line of artisans and architects, he finished multi-disciplinary courses in sculpture, painting and light design at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco (2000-2003). He then moved to London and graduated at Architectural Association School of Architecture (2009).
His works seek to blend the boundaries between art and architecture. His design practice, Carlo Calma Consultancy, Inc., also challenges itself to cross scales and media from bespoke private homes to public installations that have been called "young," "edgy," and "very impressive." His works have been said to be culturally informed, blending disciplines and surmounting limitations with new modes of being and technology.
Aside from private practice, he is currently an architectural design consultant at Multi Development and Construction Corporation where he has produced architectural works and interiors admired by members of the Philippine elite.
As a visual artist, Calma has exhibited in San Francisco, London, and Manila. He has since then taken part in solo and group exhibitions in other places, while garnering recognition from art collectors in the Southeast Asian region and beyond. Calma also owns and curates Manifesto Gallerie in Manila, as well as a fine-dining restaurant that fuses food and art, called Gallery Vask.
