JUST LOOKING


About the exhibition:

Melvin Culaba is a dark expressionist Philippine painter who offers brooding insights into his surrounding social milieu. His second solo exhibition in Singapore deals with apathy, about how people “just look” at problems, criticize, offer unhelpful comments, yet not lift a finger to solve the underlying conditions. In large epic canvases, his monstrous characterizations of people and objects, and somber, swirling palette mirrors the dire ills of the society he sees.



About the artist:

Melvin Culaba (b. 1971) graduated from the University of Santo Tomas with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1993, and has exhibited extensively in the Philippines, Korea and the United States. He has been a Finalist at the Philip Morris Philippine Art Awards from 1995-98 and 2006, and won several top awards at the Art Association of the Philippines annual painting competition and Metrobank Young Painters annual competition. He won a full grant for residency at the Vermont Studio Centre in 2005 and is a commissioned artist for the Official Christmas Cards of President Gloria Arroyo. Just Looking is his 11th solo exhibition and 2nd in Singapore.
