The artist’s method transforms endlessly replicated images from mass media into unique objects. 

“Quiballo’s work explores mass media and its effects on social and political history and lives utilizing imagery to create evocative works of art”, states Shade Projects Curator, Nicole Royse. “My work attempts to subvert this prevailing apparatus by using components from mass media to critique and construct new myths”, says Quiballo. He goes on to say, “Furthermore, I use instances of compression artifacts found in digital media as a point of intervention, where the immaculate façade of high definition media disintegrates and exposes instability in the seemingly constant stream. “
