The Hunt for Experience: Michael Cacnio Studio

We went for a hunt to find a secluded art studio along the streets of Quezon city. From outside it looked like a warehouse that no one will ever suspect of magic happening inside.

The moment we entered a wide-spaced lot, I was immediately elated with the metal sculptures scattered everywhere. I had to see each bit of it. The best part was I haven’t even entered the actual gallery yet.

After enjoying the experience, I went in and was welcomed by the artist himself. He was working on a new piece of brass sculpture in a limestone. You can instantly sense he is the shy and humble type. It was a fantastic experience to be up close and personal with the one and only, Michael Cacnio. He indulged us for a little talk about his artistry while we enjoyed roaming around the studio talking with his very accommodating wife.

At the end of the visit, I felt inspired. Sculpting is one of the facets of art that I am truly frustrated to try. I admire people who can do it effortlessly; specially someone of Cacnio’s caliber. Many have copied his style but nothing beats the original brass master.


  1. Nung una ang basa ko ay Michael Cinco Studio, kaya nagtaka ako sa mga nakita kong pictures lol

    Ang galing ng mga likha niya. Ang pinakagusto ko ay yung table (ba yun?) na may 2 bata na nagpapaagos ng mga bangkang papel :)

    1. hahahah. naimagine ko ang gulat mo na sculptures ang sining imbes na mga damit. uo isa rin yun sa paborito ko.

  2. Sir,

    IS it possible na malaman address ng studio niya sa Quezon City?
