Contemporary Visual Artist

 

Julius Poncelet Manapul's work consists on the use of contemporary material as a tool for painting, drawing, sculpting, layout design, digital design, photography and video installations to create historical influences with a new-age hybrid baroque sensibility.

Born in the City of Manila, Philippines in July 8, 1980. He immigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1990 where he studied fine arts in Ontario College of Art and Design University with a BFA in 2009. He then took one year of residency in Paris, France and one year at Toronto School of Art in 2011. Julius completed his MVS Masters of Visual Studies at University of Toronto in 2013.

In his Major Visual Art Thesis Practice Julius cuts paper and magazines to create new Hybrid images that reflects his own struggle in religious beliefs growing up as a gay young man and immigrating to Canada. At the same time finding his own identity in a queer community that upholds homonormativity, the typical gay white male as perfection of queer identity. He explores the fragile materials of the gay magazines and appropriated of digital queer images googled from the digital exchange of images for his collage, transforming the images into heavenly altars, shrines of homoerotic beauty, Queer domestic lives and happy endings while commenting on postcolonial issues. He creates a space of his own crafted domestic shrines of queerness that begs the questions: What is sacred? What is worshiped or held up as perfect? What is masculine? Who decides? Who has the power? What is marriage? and what is domesticity?

"My theme usually reveals the sensuality of the male sex, the ideology of masculinity, braking it down to the ultra androgynist and rearranging the semiotics of what it represents and how signs and thier meanings are reconstructed. Challenging the very idea of Homonormativity, racial issues witin the queer communities, cultural ideology and meanings behind the male representation."

"I want to consume all the images, and digest it, to create a new hybrid image."
