The Overwhelming Pastiches of Ronald Ventura

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Filipino artist Ronald Ventura specializes in pastiche — not only with his imagery but also with the various styles he executes within his works. References to Baroque get mixed in with nods to Disney and film noir. Each cacophonous work contains a variety of styles, meshing together realism, flat, abstract color fields and elements of 19th-century illustration. Ventura has a fascination with geological formations, which comes across more in his sculptures than his 2D work. All these disparate influences come together in surprisingly cohesive compositions. Take a look at some of Ventura’s portfolio below.
