Ronald Ventura: Big and Small Exhibition at The Ayala Museum

The Ayala Museum is featuring Ronald Ventura: Big and Small, Joel Mendez, MD Collection from March 17 to April 26, 2015 at the Ayala Museum Ground Floor Gallery.


Ronald Ventura is known for his signature style of multi-layered paintings, which utilize a broad range of imagery and tend to focus around the human form. He also makes sculptures that explore the same themes and aesthetics as his two-dimensional works.


In 2001, he was awarded the Artist of the Year prize from Art Manilla, and won the prestigious Ateneo Art Gallery, Studio Residency Grant in Sydney, Australia, for his The Human Study series of graphite works on canvas. He also participated in the Prague Biennale in 2009.

In 2011, he sold his first and foremost admired piece, the “Grayground” with a record-breaking 1.1 million USD (PhP46,995,832.65) at the Sotheby’s auction in Hong Kong.

Ronald Ventura: Big and Small, Joel Mendez, MD Collection is presented under Ayala Museum’s Collector Series exhibition program, which aims to expand the understanding and appreciation of local and international art by providing the opportunity to view artworks that are usually not seen in public, especially a body of work of a single artist whom a collector admires.

The exhibit will feature more than a hundred male and female nude paintings revealing the artist’s foundation: the human body and its language.
