SINGOS by Veejay Villafranca

SINGOS by VEEJAY VILLAFRANCA in NewsWeek Japan this month and presented in Amsterdam at the Unseen platform book Market by MAPA books

Signos is about the lives of the people displaced by extreme weather occurrences in the Philippines. As typhoons get stronger, water levels rise and farmlands dry out, the country is faced with the reality of climate change. Signos illustrates these different environmental scenarios, further complicated by humanitarian issues such as inadequate relocation, livelihood security and human trafficking.

"The numbers and figures alone are astounding, but nothing captures the country's vulnerability to climate change quite like images. Veejay Villafranca has spent the last six years in the Philippines photographing the impact of these extreme weather events." - @time TIME Magazine

"This is the psychological toll that the world hardly sees, and that those who are “resilient” are left with each day when the dust of all the aid workers and media has settled. " - @v_a_n_t_a_g_e VANTAGE/Medium

EAT//FIGHT//F***//DIE by Julien Poulson

JULIEN POULSON new exhibition EAT//FIGHT//F***//DIE at One Eleven Gallery in Siem Reap Cambodia

Get ya Wah Wah’s out! Julien Poulson’s latest series of paintings is a palimpsest of graffiti, film iconography, text and imagery out of the Hong Kong Seventies. A self-professed fan of Kung Fu and Blaxploitation films, Poulson’s new works explores the explosive and action-packed culture clash, and funky imagery of the icons created during the ”Golden Harvest” and “Shaw Bros” film factory rivalry of the Seventies. It’s a time of Food, Factories, Consumerism, Luxury Goods and Air-Con! The series also looks at how Afropolitan literary tropes through to Chinese Opera themes find new expression through the Kung Fu cinema of 70’s Hong Kong.

EAT//FIGHT//F***//DIE is all about the underdog, the fighter – much like Hong Kong of the 70s which was struggling to find its own identity under British rule while busting out with movie companies like Golden Harvest and Shaw Brothers hitting the international stage. It would lead to raw and funky Kung Fu Movies and Cop Shows – culminating with Black Cinema stars like Jim Kelly and Tamara Dobson (Cleopatra Jones) ending up in Hong Kong alongside Bruce Lee. These films and television shows remain highly influential across Southeast Asia, not least here in Cambodia where the history and legends also inform Poulson’s new EAT//FIGHT//F***//DIE series.

Poulson’s canvases are also a tribute to street artist Tsang Tsou Choi 曾灶財 (The King of Kowloon) and show how the rise of popular street art has almost eclipsed the original 'outsiders' such as Tsang. Poulson’s works superimpose big graphic icons with the minutiae of everyday life as a decidedly fun, funky and upbeat take.

And finally, just because “Everyone Loves Kung Fu Fighting”… the series is a visual jam to a funky soundtrack of Kung Fu and Blaxploitation classics – Poulson has worked with Dennis Coffey (The Funk Bros, Motown, The Temptations, Bruce Lee Enter The Dragon theme, Black Belt Jones soundtrack) to record and produce The Cambodian Space Project’s seminal Whisky Cambodia LP and this music is as much inspiration for both his paintings and the launch of his improv music group The Drunken Mantis Funk Club.
