Jason Montinola

Engrossed with encyclopedias of paintings as a child, Jason Montinola (b. 1979, Philippines) works with his subconscious and reinvents a visual language that is deeply rooted in the past but imbibed with the strangeness and familiarity of today. He is interested in the various states of revelation and concealment, inspired by classical European portraiture and Surrealist hallucination.

Montinola has exhibited at Jogja National Museum (Indonesia), Ayala Museum (Philippines) and Bencab Museum (Philippines).
