ART WITHOUT BORDERS


Art Without Borders
by Stella Tansengco-Schapero

Art Without Borders marks Stella Tansengco-Schapero's first one-woman show in the country. By crossing boundaries between media, cultural themes and through the juxtaposition of found objects and images that go beyond the decorative sphere, Schapero's works reflect the artist's own multi-cultural upbringing in the Philippines and her cross-border experiences from living in the US, Europe, and Hong Kong for the past 20 plus years.

Schapero's career in the arts began when she saw the handprints of her son Jacob on an old canvas. She repainted parts to match their living room and accented the work with a golden cicada. After adding several found objects she had collected from trips accross Asia and Europe, "Golden Cicada" was completed and an unexpected commission was soon to follow.The youngest of 6 children in a closely-knit Filipino-Chinese family, Schapero was exposed to various cultures and arts and crafts at an early age by her parents who would taker her on their business trips abroad. After obtaining her bachelor's degree in A.B. Psychology from UP Diliman, she pursued her MBA at Wharton, University of Pennsylvania. A securitization banker for 18 years, Schapero left banking in 2008 to explore new business ventures while enjoying a more flexible schedule, enabling her to re-discover family, friends, and her art.
