Ryan Villamael, one of the three winners of the 2015 Ateneo Art Awards,
blurs the boundaries of art and craft through his sculptural paper cut
outs. The menial task of paper-cutting is elevated into critically
acclaimed artwork that is the manifestation of Villamael’s views on global
politics. In *Isles,* his 2014 solo exhibition that earned him the award,
he brings to life maps, designing and cutting them into elegant patterns
and then molding them into sculptures encased in vitrines.

Although Villamael graduated in 2009 from the College of Fine Arts, UP
Diliman with a major in Painting, his exhibitions since then have mostly
featured his cut out works such as his two exhibitions, *Flatland and
Kosmik, *that were shortlisted for the 2013 Ateneo Art Awards. His
exploration of current issues through a traditional craft based medium
resonated with the Ateneo Art Gallery’s institutional partners La Trobe
University Visual Arts Centre in Australia, Artesan Gallery + Studio in
Singapore and The Creative Campus Liverpool Hope University, UK, all of
which selected him for their artist in residence program.

*Artspeak : Ryan Villamael will be on Wednesday, 4 November at 3 pm at the
Ateneo Art Gallery. *
