MD: "Manuel Ocampo riding with us on Motorcycle Diaries"

An honor for us to have filipino artist Manuel Ocampo on Motorcycle Diaries.

In L.A., where he spent most of his time in the 80's after studying fine arts in U.P. , Manuel made an impact on the art scene in the U.S. after doing shows for alternative galleries like La Luz de Jesus and 01 Gallery.

From the late 80s to the 90s, he was part of the "lowbrow art movement", with the likes of Joe Coleman, Mark Ryden and Robert Williams.

In early 2000, Manuel have participated in very important art events like the Seville, Venice and Berlin Viennale.

This week, we talk to Manuel about the use of religious imagery in his art, and his views on the CCP "Kulo" exhibit controversy.

Motorcycle Diaries airs tonight at 8 pm on GMANEWSTV.
