Leslie de Chavez

The Department of Fine & Applied Arts is pleased to announce the fourth international artist residency from the Philippines.

Manila-born Filipino artist Leslie de Chavez is a young artist who cautiously deals with sensitive topics including cultural imperialism, colonial history, contemporary life, politics and religion in his country.  He contemplates deeply about the significant function, influence and directivity of art in society.

Recognised for his distinguished talent and sensibility in painting, deChavez 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. 

Leslie de Chavez has held several solo exhibitions in the Philippines, China, Korea, Singapore and Switzerland.  He has also participated in several notable exhibitions and art festivals, which include the Singapore Biennale 2013, 3rd Asian Art Biennale in Taiwan 2011, 3rd Nanjing Triennial in China 2008, 1st Pocheon Asia Biennale in South Korea 2007.

A two-time winner (2010 and 2014) of the Ateneo Art Awards for Visual Art, Leslie deChavez is also the director of the artist-run initiative Project Space Pilipnas, in Lucban, Quezon.  He is exclusively represented by Arario Gallery since 2006.

Leslie de Chavez will be at Cornerstone studios of the Creative Campus until 14th February.
