RODEL TAPAYA: NEW ART FROM THE PHILIP­PINES

Artist Profile - - VIEW -

Draw­ing in­spri­a­tion from pre­colo­nial mythol­ogy and Filipino folk­loric tra­di­tion, Rodel Tapaya plays with myths both past and present. Com­mi­sioned by the NGA, he presents a new work epic in scale that tells three sep­a­rate yet in­ter­con­nected nar­ra­tives across a 10-me­tre trip­tych. Visu­ally strik­ing and cul­tur­ally in­for­ma­tive, Tapaya tells lo­cal tales that grap­ple with a global au­di­ence.
