Eric Masangkay's sculptural works transcend the boundary between figurative & abstract as he aims to portray the gamut of experiences defining the human condition. Varying from exultation to contemplative retrospection, he captures the nuances of movement & emotions particular to such plight and situation. He appropriates arrested motions that accentuate the sentiment he intends to project. His use of diverse materials is a distinct component of his oeuvre.
Masangkay studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts major in Painting at the University of the Philippines. He has received several awards and citations in different art competitions and has had his solo and group exhibitions in various prestigious venues.
