A monograph on the works of painter Alfredo Esquillo Jr. (b. 1972) whose "tableaux of Philippine social life attempts to uncover the almost surreal ironies of a culture convulsing with myriad contradictions. The artist’s emergence on the Philippine contemporary art scene is noted for the artist’s credible competence in illustration and the retooling talent in figuration. Esquillo’s painting style captures quite cogently the hybrid cultures of the Philippines today. With his growing interest in cultural paradoxes, he begins to redefine the technology of photographic effect as well as the idiom of painting itself."
