Jose Tence Ruiz, one of the featured artists of the Philippine Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale, has always been adept in coming up with searing examinations of the current socio-political conditions. As one of the foremost artists practicing today, Jose Tence Ruiz has not left behind his roots in Social Realism, but instead even strengthened their hold by creating recurring motifs and figures that establish a lexicon through which present societal ills can be articulated.
