Zean Cabangis trained as a painter, uses acrylic and emulsion transfer as his medium.

The subject matter of his work consists of reconstructed memories, film scenes as well as objects and scenes from everyday life. Cabangis’ work is embedded in his personal experiences and explores the processes of remembering and forgetting.
