“While Southeast Asia has blossomed in the global contemporary art market over the last 10 years, the art coming out of MANILA stands out as dynamic, colorful, with a wide range of influences and materials. The emerging artists of Manilla reflect globalization, the deep impact of colonialism, and the topsy-turvy nature of their current political reality and recent history.”
MARIANO CHING, ‘Pale Moments After the Explosion Series: Man’, 2013
acrylic and oil on shaped canvas, 18 x 18 in.

“For example, the pervasiveness of Catholic traditions, as introduced by the Spanish, are heavily contrasted with disillusionment over the Church’s inability to confront the overpopulation, political corruption, and the squandering of economic resources that is so rampant in the country. The images of American pop culture, from inane movies and television shows to comic books, brand-name luxury products and fast foods are often used not in admiration, but in defiant rejection of their presumed authority.
