Lesley-Anne Cao is a visual artist based in Quezon City, Philippines. Her practice is a series of divergent processes that explore the interplay of materiality, exhibition making, and fiction. Her work makes use of recognizable materials — books, plants, debris, precious metals, and money — towards the actualization and presentation of fictional objects and environments.

Cao holds a BFA from the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts - Diliman. Recent exhibitions include Hard and soft prayers at The Drawing Room (2021) and a knowing intimacy or a life at the Vargas Museum (2019). She has been granted artist residencies in Taiwan and Finland and has also presented work in Australia, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Indonesia.
