Filipino painter Ronald Ventura (born 1973) combines references to art history with underground culture to reflect upon the relationship between the so-called First, Second and Third Worlds.
Playing on the tensions between the promises and shortcomings of globalization, Ventura presents the Philippines as a conflicted nation that must reconcile its attachment to tradition with its desires for the future.
