Despite naming local modernist master Mauro Malang Santos as one of his core influences, contemporary Filipino artist Martin Honasan cites his eagerness to participate in the new and novel conversations of his fellow artists as the main driving force of his art.

Through his work, Honasan seeks to explore the concept of culture, identity and individuality by utilizing the medium of the human face, not only as a point of reference, but as an entrance into the worldless sublime.

In this piece, much like most of his recent work, Honasan’s juxtaposition of realist technique with abstract textures and treatments seemingly echo the cacophonous beauty of the non-pictorial truth that governs the heart and mind.
