The artist’s take on his work: “A sense of fusion may emerge from a multiracial society even as each individual culture manifests its own uniqueness. Cultures may clash, but the differences also draw together in a particular way to present perspectives peculiar to the mix, as can be enjoyed in London, New York and Singapore. The spectator who steps back to look at the differences may encounter the experience of an elaborate celebration.”

Born in Kalibo, Philippines, Soguilon now resides in Greater London. His awards include Grand Prize in the National Youth Talent Search (Painting) (1987), Finalist in the Shell-National Student Art Competition (1991,1992,1993), Best Thesis in the College of Fine Arts/Painting, University of the Philippines (1993), and 2nd Prize in the Art Association of the Philippines’ Annual Art Competition (2001).

Soguilon’s exhibition is set to run from June 26th to July 7th.
