Abrigo's art weighs in various levels of criticality in terms of historical awareness and social commentary. He got his arts education at the University of the Philippines. He was a two time-finalist in the PLDT DPC Annual Visual Arts Competition held in 2005 and 2006 and also was a finalist in the Metrobank Art and Design Excellence Awards Shell National Students Art Competition.
