Collection: Leeroy New

Leeroy New (b. 1986, General Santos City) is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice manifests in large-scale immersive environments, costuming, collaborative performances, and video works driven by concepts of world-building, myth-making, and social change. His use of natural materials, found objects, and assorted discards transformed into representations of a specific  speculative future intersects Filipino contemporary life,  pre-colonial mythology, and environmentalism. This eventually led to the creation of the Aliens of Manila project, an ongoing multi-platform collaborative series  which documents “alien” bodies inhabiting Manila’s colorful yet often harsh streets as well as beyond its shores.
