Ferdinand Cacnio is, in essence, a visual artist. He finished his studies at the University of the Philippines, Diliman with degrees in B.S. Psychology and B.S. Civil Engineering. Although he had no formal training in the arts, he has been nurtured in the aesthetics of fine arts since childhood with the mentoring of his artist-father and members of the Philippine art world. This led him first to a fruitful 20-year career in graphic design as CreativeDirector of his Atelier Cacnio. In 2005, Ferdinand's official career as a sculptor started with a successful solo sculpture exhibit "The Dancer." In that same year, he bagged an award from the Art Association of the Philippines. His passion has produced a public art in Bonifacio Global City, seven solo exhibits, participation in a number of group shows and art auction that have caught the attention of art collectors and the elusive approval of well-respected art critics.
Ferdinand is a member of Tuesday Group of Artists, Art Association of the Philippines (AAP), Sining Tambobong and Society of Philippine Sculptors (SPS).
