Brief Summary
Christopher Bugarin X-Abeleda
Born November 2, 1975
San Juan, Metro Manila

He studied in Philippine School Of Interior Design in 1994. He was part of the PSID Class 1996-graduation exhibit entitled "Let's Pause for a Commercial" where, together with Kenneth Chua, his work, "Suite Dreams" was published in Design Architecture, Asian Interiors and newspapers in 1996.

He was commissioned as Senior Interior Designer for Design Center, an upstart design firm in Saudi Arabia. At Design Center, he was privileged to work on commercial projects such as the Extra Superstore, Hennawi Optics and Arabian Loaf Bakery. He also designed private projects for the royal families.

He is currently working on several projects in Saudi Arabia and in Egypt.

His passion for architecture and the arts broadened his vision as a designer. Using his creativity to solve design problems, he designed unique furnitures for his projects and tailors them to the personalities of his clients. He adjusts to his clients' needs with perspectives covering antiquity to contemporary.

He believes that his work evolves as he explores different forms of art. He start to experiments some of his design ideas to drawings and also in photography.

He expresses his drawings by transforming his manifestation to drawings. He work with his subconscious mind by drawing outlines then define it with his conscious mind to give more emphasis on details and by using his emotion to feel his self-satisfaction.

Dynamic, mysterious and surprising best describe his abstract drawings. Appreciating his abstract artworks is like discovering new meanings and exploring to his dimension.

“My Art is initiated by thy sub consciousness, defined by thy consciousness and satisfied by thy emotion. My work evolves as I explore different forms of art. My drawings express my inner though and vision. My photography captures the things that surround me. I combine these to things to create a new meaning for myself and for mankind.” By Christopher Bugarin x-Abeleda
