The Paintings of Ronson Culibrina

by Andy SmithPosted on

In Filipino artist Ronson Culibrina’s haunting yet vibrant paintings, the artist examines globalization, social issues, and more through both crowded and sparse scenes. The artist is also taking a look at art history inside his home country of the Philippines, as well injecting cross-cultural and Biblical iconography.

In a statement, Culibrina’s blend of classical and contemporary is described as “interventions that tackle socio-political issues and reference old masters in Filipino art history. The language employed in his work runs a wide gamut of icons and images that reflect on a multitude of themes including the exchange of culture and trade; the phenomenon of globalization and subsequent diaspora; and the dynamic between art and economy amongst others.”
