 この度メグミオギタギャラリーでは、今世界で最も注目を集めているフィリピンアート界期待の新星・Pow Martinez(ポウ・マルティネス)の日本初個展を開催します。

 ポウ・マルティネスは1983年にマニラで生まれ、University of the Philipines-DilmanとKalayan Collegeでアートを学びました。
2010年にはフィリピンで最も輝かしい35歳以下の現代美術作家に与えられるAteneo Art Awardsを受賞しました。




Pow Martinez is a Manila-based interdisciplinary artist. He studied Visual Communication at the University of the Philippines and Painting at the Kalayaan College. He holds degrees in Painting and Visual Communication.
His practice ranges from traditional media such as painting to sound and sculptural installations. Extensively drawing from the tradition of grotesque as well as pop imagery and genre music, Martinez offers eclectic and humorous take on Filipino history, culture, art scene and market as well as phenomena like Pinoy pop culture.

Martinez’ works has been exhibited in the Philippines and internationally (in Germany, France, Thailand, United States and others). Being one of the most promising and prolific young artists in the Philippines, he has received the prestigious Ataneo Art Award in 2010.

In this show "from the bitter abyss", the artist will release his latest 10 oil paintings with various large and small sizes.
Please enjoy Pow's first solo exhibition in Japan!
