Francis Calimlim is San Francisco-based mixed media artist born in Quezon City, Philippines and raised in San Diego, California. He has participated in a number of group shows in San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. He received his BFA in Multimedia at San Diego State University in 2011, and his MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute.

Dismemberment, distancing, exhaustion, and nostalgia are reoccuring ideas in his work, although always projecting connectedness, bridging, replenishing, and hope for the future.
