The Hyper-Realistic Work of Filipino Artist Ju-Vi

Posted: August 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

Today we get a glimpse from emerging Philippines artist Ju-Vi, whose hyper-realistic paintings depict and appear obsessed with a few recurring subjects — the human body, water, and plastic. Through those subjects, the artist portrays a range of human emotions and deeper ideas. Plastic, for instance, is closely associated with what seems to be feelings of suffocation, anguish, frustration, or struggle, while water is closely tied to serenity, purity, and a general sense of peacefulness.
