Growing up and taking root in a once foreign country, John Marie Andrada (b. 2001) is a Filipino artist based in Singapore. She recently graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts (First Class Honours) from LASALLE College of the Arts in partnership with Goldsmiths, University of London in 2023. She is keen on experimenting alternative ways of image-making with various mediums through abstraction, storytelling and material play. Through a multi-disciplinary practice, she approaches art-making with an open, critical and inquisitive mind, in hopes of challenging preconceived ideas while exploring notions on identity, memory and time.

 

She was a recipient of The Winston Oh Travelogue Award (2024) and recently participated in Undescribed #9 at DECK, Singapore. Her works were nominated for International Takifuji Art Award, Japan (2022) and have been featured in Project 3V (Visualize, Voice and Vision) at FassArt Gallery, Istanbul (2021), 9th Dali International Photography Exhibition (DIPE), China (2021), and received the Special Choice Award for the 41st Daegu International Grand Exhibition, Korea (2022).
