“The skin of his subjects can become an expressive surface, with tattoo drawings adding a new layer of meaning. Over the years he has developed a menagerie of what he calls “zoomanities” — human subjects with animal attributes, and vice versa — based on early 17th-century etchings of humanized animals he once saw.” - Sonia Kolesnikov-Jessop from the New York Times


Ronald Ventura has established himself in the last decade as one of the most prominent Contemporary Southeast Asian artists. Since his record breaking sale of “Graygound”, which sold for USD $1.1 million at the Sotheby’s Hong Kong auction in 2011, the Filipino artist has continued to produce works of art composed of figurative motifs, using his multi-layering style which is unique to him.
