The photo-manipulations works here show the artist’s recent experience of how it is when breaking off from the world, trying to counter the system and living almost off-the-grid and looking at life in a different perspective. The artist chose to live in his hometown in the Philippines, stayed in their family’s house for 2 1/2 weeks without talking with anyone in person, with only the internet as his window, while doing his everyday life of just cooking, working on commissioned works, swimming, watching films, making guitar music and creating reflections on the life he experienced particulary related to the memories he had with members of his family. During the artist’s reclusive and almost hermitic time, the artist argues that if you go away from all distractions and immerse yourself in a place where you are alone, from all the ups and downs of the modern world’s fast-paced society, you will see and remember things much clearly.

Born in Manila, Philippines in 1986. I am a visual artist who recently focuses on acrylic paintings, photo-manipulation and installations. In my work, the subjects are represented through a mix of imagined and realistic images, playing with the expectations of the viewer and raising questions about the role that human emotions play in memory. The scenes reflect on psychological impulses and on the way they are depicted and fused with everyday reality. My photographs and paintings explore the traditional boundaries of visual representation, where the creative powers of the unconscious are unleashed to reveal a different reality. In the past I have exhibited in several countries - Australia, England, Germany, Georgia, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Philippines, Poland, Serbia, South Korea, Taiwan, UK and USA. I have also won a few prizes like the 2010 1st prize in the Digital Art Category at the Art Museum of Chianciano Terme, Italy and 2011 Best Photography Illustration from The Redmond Digital Arts Festival in Washington, USA, 2015 2nd place in the Secret Art Prize from the Curious Duke Gallery in London and Nominated for the APBF Signature Art Prize of 2014 from the Singapore Art Museum. I was also named as one of 2014 and 2017 Asia's Top Ten Most Inspiring Visual Artists in Asia by the Top 10 Publications in Malaysia. I was also a 2020 Arte Laguna Prize Finalist and recently I’ve worked with GIANT to create bicycles that are based on the stories and life experiences using bicycles of people that work in the cycling company GIANT. He currently lives in Taichung, Taiwan where he recently has been doing a lot of public art installations.
