About the Artist:
Reuel Rendon (b. 1983) is a self-taught artist who quit his job overseas as a hotelier to return to the Philippines and start a career as an artist. His most recent works draw inspiration from renaissance art, graffiti and cartoons. Referencing classical paintings, Reuel re-contextualizes the didactic and classical into elaborate interpretations of popular culture. Through revitalizing historical paintings and altering the icons of contemporary fantasies, Rendon raises the question of boundaries between popular culture and art and how it has been adapted and deformed into contemporary art.
