Leeroy New

2022 Residence

Born in 1986, Mindanao, the Philippines (currently lives in Manila)
Leeroy New is active not only in the field of art, but also in the film, music video, and fashion industry. Using fluorescence color objects that appear like neon signs in the Filipino towns, New creates a diverse range of works from the gigantic installations that occupy the urban landscape to the performance work with the dancers wearing the costume that evokes us the image of unknown living organisms living in the deep sea or universe. In" the 4th Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale 2009", New created a large sculpture work at the museum entrance. The artist is coming back to Fukuoka for the first time after ten years.
