About Impy Pilapil
Impy Pilapil is a multimedia artist – sculptor, serigraphist, muralist, and stage designer. She works and moves through various media (stone, glass, steel, wood & paper) without the burden of hesitation or loss of identity. The evolution of her work has progressed towards large-scale relief and free-standing sculptures, which has made her name synonymous with monumental art commissions. Pilapil’s art centers around themes of solace, tranquility and the spirit.

Her inspirations have transcended concepts of nature & ecology and have embraced the metaphysical in her tireless search for answers. She believes that it is essential to be deeply involved with nature, community, and self-development, which in turn align with her being a student of Anthroposophy – ‘ The scientific exploration of the spiritual world ’– founded by Rudolf Steiner.
The greatest feats of human civilization: faith, science, the arts, & philosophy, are all essential for the future of humankind, but in order to partake, one must be in a state of constant evolution. She first attended art school in The University of the Philippines then pursued further studies in Academia Italiana, Rome and Pratt Institute Graphics Center in New York.
