Bio

Rey Labarento (b.1995) captures the unpretentious gestures, mundane daily routines, and serene beauty of Valencia, Negros Oriental, through his easily recognizable depictions of its people and scenery. Utilizing a diverse range of materials, including paper, and terracotta, his signature embellishment of outlining thread highlights relatable scenes that elevate the everyday.

Labarento has exhibited locally in Dumaguete City — with his first solo exhibition at Shelter — as well as domestically in Iloilo City, and Cebu City in the Visayas, and in Makati City in Luzon. He also was part of Mugna Gallery’s presentation at Visayas Art Fair 2022. He lives and works in Valencia, Negros Oriental.
