Defining the Local, art talk, Leslie de Chavez

Manila-born artist, de Chavez is a young artist who cautiously deals with sensitive topics like cultural imperialism, colonial history, contemporary life, politics, and religion in the country. He contemplates deeply about the significant function, influence, and directivity of art in the society. Recognized for his distinguished talent and sensibility in painting, de Chavez casts bitter metaphors on the society he lives in, suggesting a response to realities through reconstruction and reinvention of narratives, issues, icons, and symbols of the times.
