Jigger Cruz

Jigger Cruz

nato nel 1984 a Manila (Filippine)

La pratica artistica di Jigger è caratterizzata dall'idea di deturpare e vandalizzare l’opera attraverso l’applicazione di strati di colore ad olio, della pittura spray e dei suoi interventi sulla tela e sulla cornice che può essere tagliata o bruciata.

Ogni opera nasce da una tela precedentemente dipinta dove l’artista di solito copia lo stile dei pittori fiamminghi e post-rinascimentali. Senza un apparente schema logico, l’artista applica strato su strato il pastoso colore ad olio, che nasconde e confonde al contempo il dipinto precedentemente realizzato. 

Le sue opere esplorano in concetto del fallimento del dialogo tra la tela e il suo significato, tra passato e presente, tra figurazione ed astrazione. 

Le figure dei dipinti classici che traspaiono al di sotto, ricordano allo spettatore la faticosa attività pittorica e il bagaglio storico artistico del pittore contemporaneo. 

Jigger Cruz è un giovane artista filippino già quotato internazionalmente nelle più grandi case d’asta del mondo. Ha studiato Belle Arti presso l’Università Far Eastern nelle Filippine e design al De La Salle-College di St. Benilde.
