Fabrianne Maglanque Morales is an eccentric, pocket-sized art and PR professional living in Manila. Her experience running projects across multi-art forms at Kanto Artist-Run Space, TIU Theater, ASPACE Philippines, and ZenART London further equipped her in curatorial, content creation, and community relations work.


Fabrianne is an avowed champion of distinct visual styles in contemporary art. She delights in styles untethered from the world of recognizable objects, those that do not naturalistically nor accurately represent visual reality. Over time, this love for unique visual styles became evident through the roster of artists she continues to work with — artists who excelled in mastering their chosen artistic medium and style. To date, Fabrianne has curated and produced exhibitions with artists 1111, Alfonso Recto, Astrud Moscoso, Bea Policarpio, Chino Carlo, Fitz Herrera, Isabel Barredo-Del Mundo, Jack Mernin, Jane Cuevas, Nasser Lubay, Summer de Guia, and Ted Peñaflor amongst others.


Sparked by Fabrianne's devotion to abstract art and distinct visual styles; inspired by her mentor, Berlin-based curator, historian, and art critic Dr. An Paenhuysen; then fueled by her years of working with artists and art buyers, she started FM Abstract.


Fabrianne wears black every day and when she's not creating buzz, exploring curatorial concepts, or saturating in art, still dreams of becoming a Wes Anderson film character.


..Don't you sometimes feel funny writing about yourself in the 3rd person? :P
