Born in the Philippines, Paul Anthony Galang spent most of his childhood in an Ilocano household before he immigrated to O‘ahu in 2001. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa in the spring of 2015. As a printmaker working primarily in lithography, his works often depicts the process of growth and decay, and an interest in the human body. Paul’s work frequently represents the idea of dislocation, isolation and a sense of loss. He hopes to learn and uncover the connection and disconnection between self and non-self or the ‘native’ and the ‘foreign’.
