I enjoy making art that explores societal roles and expectations, familial ties, and cultural identity. Growing up as a gay Asian boy in a strict religious environment has been challenging - I want to create art that people can resonate with, allowing them to insert their own interpretations and interwoven narratives while still maintaining the fact that it is still intimate and personal to me.


Title: “M(ansan)alapropos”

Description: A fruit still life depicted in a rainbow of acrylic colours. The majority of the fruits in the still life are yellow, the only exception being the red apple (“mansanas” in Tagalog) trapped inside a rose-tinted vase. The apple represents isolation from everyone else who are deemed to be “normal”.

Medium: Acrylics on Canvas
