Yang Pulongbarit-Cuevo is a Chicago-based papercut artist and illustrator mainly inspired by nature, music, anatomy, and folklores. Yang started as a political cartoonist for The Manila Collegian, the official student publication of the University of the Philippines in Manila, where she received her bachelor’s degree in Organizational Communication. She eventually earned her master’s degree in Development Communication from the same university, while accumulating about 8 years of combined work experience in marketing and business development. Studying and working in the field of communication complements her art practice, as she allows her work to impart messages in imaginative and symbolic ways. Yang also hosts a weekly radio show and writes newsletters for the Chicago Independent Radio Project – another local non-profit organization.
Fun Fact: Her life is pretty much recorded in a bunch of Excel spreadsheets and Trello boards.
