Lani Maestro was born in Manila, Philippines where she began working professionally as an artist in the late seventies until she immigrated to Canada in 1982. Her expanded art practice includes exhibitions with installation and sculpture, incorporating writing and book works, drawing, video, photography, sound and film. In the early nineties, her collaborative engagement with artist and critic, Stephen Horne launched Harbour Magazine of Art and Everyday Life, a journal of writing and artworks by artists which she co-edited and designed. This editorial project expanded to produce burning books, artists’ books which also accompanied works in exhibition at galerie burning, an itinerant gallery space she co-directed in Montreal, Canada.
Lani Maestro’s work has been shown extensively and has gained the respect and admiration of a diverse international artistic community for its poetic minimalism, its subtle but forceful engagement. Maestro has participated the Biennals of Canada (1998), Sharjah, United Arab Emirates (2009), Busan, Korea (2004), Shanghai, China (2000), Sydney, Australia (1998), Istanbul, Turkey (1997), Havana, Cuba (1986/1994) where she received the Biennal prize.

Lani Maestro lives and works in Canada, France and Manila.
