VISUAL ARTS

Scout - - CULTURE CLASS - CU­RATED BY RAY­MOND ANG

“We’ve asked some of our fa­vorite fash­ion de­sign­ers, film­mak­ers, and visual artists to work to­gether on spe­cial short films for the fes­ti­val. I think we’re go­ing to have very in­ter­est­ing re­sults.”

LEEROY NEW

Born in Gen­eral San­tos City, Leeroy New is one of the most ex­cit­ing Filipino artists to­day. He is well known for his un­con­ven­tional, provoca­tive work with sculp­tures, out­door in­stal­la­tions, film, theater, and fash­ion.

DEX FER­NAN­DEZ

Through jux­ta­po­si­tion of re­li­gious iconog­ra­phy with pop im­agery, chil­dren’s draw­ings, tat­too mo­tives, and cut-outs from adult mag­a­zines, Dex Fer­nan­dez’s eclec­tic com­po­si­tions chal­lenge the tra­di­tional def­i­ni­tions of high cul­ture and fine art.

#MODESURREALISTE
