Stirring the ashes

De Chavez was one of the three winners of the 2014 Ateneo Art Awards and the recipient of the Ateneo Art Gallery – Liverpool Hope University Residency Grant. De Chavez won the award for his works in the 2014 Lopez Museum exhibition Complicated which investigated the complex relationship of the Philippines with its former colonizers, the United States and Spain.

Through his paintings and installations, de Chavez reflects on the power structures of the past and present, giving visual form to the disparities that have persisted throughout history. Using powerful images and text, De Chavez captures your attention and forces you to reflect upon his subjects. These continue to haunt you beyond your physical encounter with them.

We believe that just because one is popular, doesn't mean it merits that popularity. There are many at the fringes also meriting attention, though do not have the means to means/know-how to be so. And so here we are, celebrating everything... artistic life from the fringes.
