Anthony Pabillano oral history interview reflecting on Covid-19 pandemic
Anthony Pabillano immigrated from the Philippines to the US during his teenage years, which was quite a turbulent memory for him and became one of the inspirations for his later artistic creativity. He pursued an undergraduate degree in Accounting in Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi, TX and a Master’s degree in University of Texas at Austin. Upon graduation, he became an Advisory Forensic and Litigation professional, for which he works full-time; in his spare time he immerses himself in creating art. He is particularly drawn to paper art, which he was initially inspired by Henri Matisse due to art classes in high school.
