Ronald Ventura: Works 1998-2017Ronald Ventura: Works 1998-2017

Published by Skira editore.
By Demetrio Paparoni.

A monograph of the Filipino artist, one of the most acclaimed artists of his generation in Southeast Asia, whose signature style is made of multilayered painting.

Ronald Ventura is a contemporary Filipino artist known for his intermingling of hyper-realism, cartoons, and graffiti with both historical and Pop subject matter. His work portrays scenes of chaotic disarray, incorporating traditional Western and Asian mythologies with contemporary cultural symbols like Mickey Mouse. Working in both painting and sculpture, there is often an ominous sense of expansion in Ventura’s works, with objects and patterns swirling outward.

Born in 1973 in Manila, the Philippines, the artist earned a BFA in painting from the University of Santo Tomas in 1993. After graduating, he worked at the university as an instructor. Ventura had his first solo exhibitions in 2000, called All Souls Day, which was held at the Drawing Room in Makati City, Philippines, and Innerscapes, which was held at the West Gallery Megamall in Mandaluyong City.

Since then, Ventura has continued to refine his signature style of multi-layered paintings, which utilize a broad range of imagery and tend to focus around the human form. In addition to paintings, Ventura also makes sculptures that explore the same themes and aesthetics as his two-dimensional works.

Ronald VenturaRonald Ventura

Published by Damiani.

Filipino painter Ronald Ventura (born 1973) combines references to art history with underground culture to reflect upon the relationship between the so-called First, Second and Third Worlds. Playing on the tensions between the promises and shortcomings of globalization, Ventura presents the Philippines as a conflicted nation that must reconcile its attachment to tradition with its desires for the future.
