Napay was born in 1986, Manila, Philippines. Napay originally used oil paints, until he developed an adverse allergy to the medium. Whilst recovering, he explored the potential of other materials, and explored working with the available threads and textiles at home. Growing up with a seamstress mother, Napay was exposed to a wide variety of threads, cotton and fabrics and these materials gave him a strong ground into a different world of creativity. The artist realized the creative process was quite similar - from early conceptualization to finishing touches on an artwork. Now equipped with a needle for a brush, thread and fabric as his paint, the artist approaches his canvas as he would a painting. His composition stays true whilst playing with shadow and light, in effect transcending any intuitive boundary between painting and creating a tapestry.
In 2013, Napay was awarded the prestigious Ateneo Art Award, emerging as winner in the Contemporary Artists category, besting artists from all over the Philippines. The award granted Napa Two Artist–in-residence programmes at both Liverpool Hope University in the United Kingdom, and at Artesan Gallery + Studio in Singapore. He has held five solo exhibitions, including a solo presentation at ArtStage Singapore with Artesan Gallery in January 2015, and a solo exhibition entitled Sanctuary at the Ateneo Art Gallery in August. In October 2015, Napay won first prize in the much covetedIl LorenzoMagnifico art awards at the 10th Florence Biennale in Italy.

He borrows and engages the methodologies of different disciplines in order to develop a new language for art. With this cross-fertilized knowledge, he launches philosophical inquiries to practice a cross-sector method to view the reality. Simultaneously, he transforms these visions into art forms, engaging in multiple mediums, including film, theater, multimedia, installation, painting and text etc.
