“I try to give people a different way of looking at their surroundings. That’s art to me.”
Social art or frequently referred to as “social-practice,” typically focuses on work that impacts societies’ problems like poverty, inequality, pollution, politics and the impact of religion amongst its own people. Kevin Villar Cubinar’s artworks tends to display a strong sociological and political bent, often in an effort to draw attention to collective ills and conditions which are meant to encourage empowerment or incite change in a community. His art is in the intent to change the narrative of today’s neglect.
Kevin is a young talented Filipino artist whose areas of interest are in portraiture, painting and working on murals. Currently a graduating student of Architecture and when not in school; has participated in Petron Painting Competition, Shell Art Painting Competition, GSIS Painting Competition and most recently, at the Metrobank Art and Design Excellence (MADE). He said he was inspired by the vision of joining art competitions because of its commitment to nation-building for a better world.
Perhaps soon, Kevin will be amongst the first Filipino artist whose artistic efforts will spur change and revitalization in a better world amongst all Filipinos here and overseas….He is indeed one to watch for.
