Enter the world of the beautifully bizarre as artist, sculptor, and designer Leeroy New unveils his works that celebrate Pinoy and LGBT pride at Pride Night 2016 on June 11 at Pineapple Lab in Makati City.
The young contemporary artist is known for creating eccentric and out-of-this-world artwork that challenge the imagination. One of his most famous creations include his collaboration with designer Kermit Tesoro for pop star Lady Gaga's muscle dress in her "Marry the Night" music video.
New's artistry is experienced in film, theatre, visual arts, and fashion. He works as a production designer, has designed sets and costumes for theater groups like Ballet Philippines and Dulaang UP, has participated in Philippine Fashion Week, has joined numerous exhibitions abroad like the Singapore Biennale (2008) and the Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale (2009), and has mounted large-scale art installations like his Balete series (2010).
