BIOGRAPHY

Manuel Ocampo (b. 1965, Manila) paints images that boldly tackles taboo subjects through his depictions of haunting visions, representing a world that is nightmarish, populated by religious motifs and body parts. By doing so, he explicitly exposes hidden wounds that pierce into contemporary social consciousness.   His work was recently included in the Philippine Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2017, marking his third presentation in Venice after 1993 and 2001. His participation in the shows Helter Skelter: LA Art in the 1990’s (Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, 1992) and Documenta IX (1992) established his status in the art world.
