Alfredo Esquillo Jr

Born in Manila in 1972, Alfredo Esquillo Jr majored in painting at University of Santo Thomas. Since then painting has remained the mainstay of his practice, even being incorporated into his more recent works that could best be described as assemblages or installations. Early in his career Esquillo was heavily influenced by ‘magic realist’ artists and Filipino social realists, but as his practice has developed he has broadened his themes to more politicised examinations of the contemporary and historical experiences of his nation. His technical prowess is evident in crafted realist paintings that often appropriate imagery from religious iconography, historical documentation and popular culture.

Esquillo’s recent work has imagined the journey of the Filipino nation, from serial colonisation and exploitation to a more hopeful future. His works examine individual, social, historical and communal identities, re-imagining familiar representations to question how these viewpoints are constructed. Esquillo continues to live and work in Manila, while exhibiting throughout the Philippines and internationally.
