Archibald Pacana comes from Mindanao, Southern Philippines. The island is has a colorful, culturally diverse population speaking various languages.The island’s culture and arts especially those of the Moro and Lumad groups almost remain untouched by Western influences.
The ‘Okir’ design is common among the Tausug, Maranao and Maguindanao tribes and these motifs are dominant in Pacana's own works and the okir has become his inspiration even in his visual content projects.
His formative years as an artist were done at the Integrated Performing Arts Guild (IPAG), the resident theatre company of the Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology.
