About the artwork:
The overarching theme of this series touches on the beauty of Siargao Island and the profound feeling it brings.
Wild Ocean. This artwork is dedicated to the local surfers. The ocean is literally their playground. This is for all the glassy days and times they paddle in the water, brave the currents, cruise through swells and barrels, and wait for the next good wave to come. They are as free and wild as the ocean.

About Kate Quebrar:
Kate Quebrar is a creative designer, calligrapher and muralist. She worked as an advertising art director for both local and global brands before she transitioned to being an independent branding designer and muralist in 2018. She began painting murals back in 2015 and had an opportunity to be one of the artists for Art BGC in 2016. Since then, her mural journey snowballed from there, allowing her to collaborate with brands such as The Walt Disney/Lucasfilm, Wanderland Music & Arts Festival, Filinvest, Johnnie Walker, Warner Music Philippines, McCann Worldgroup, and Adore Cosmetics. Her branding clients include both local and international start-up brands that gravitate around lifestyle, travel, and sustainability.
She is now based in Siargao Island, juggling work and life by painting more murals, writing signature logos as a day job, crafting branding identities on the side, and surfing usually at sunset time. Recently, her Sundays are spent visiting other towns and helping young kids develop their creativity through art together with other artists on the island.
While her job as a graphic designer requires precision and accuracy, she finds comfort in using loose sketching / coloring technique on her artworks. A traditional artist who likes to explore different kinds of medium and also a digital artist who creates conceptual illustrations and collage.
