Posted | Views: 16,353

Pow Martinez known for his sound and sculptural installation works has in the last few years taken his eclectic, flamboyant and humorous viewpoints on Pinoy pop-culture into the realm of painting. Pow’s paintings stand strong and inventive as they compete and make fun of the current market driven resurrection in photo-realism painting in the Philippine art scene. Pow’s paintings are thick with paint and humor. Scenes of the apocalypse the inquisition and demonic local icons sprawl across his canvases with harsh ease. Pow has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Manila, Malaysia and Japan. 2010 solo exhibition Hyper blast abomination at Mag:net Gallery, Manila.
