Visual artist Leeroy New lends his vision and craftsmanship to the upcoming Cinco de Mayhem music festival on May 4 with his Mexican utopia public installation at the venue at Vista Mall Daang Hari Open Grounds.
In collaboration with fellow conceptual artist Georjanno Abenoja, New will mount his large-scale art crafted from bamboo, neon lights, mesh, rope lights, and conduit as centerpiece to the event, which promises to be a festive celebration of music, youthful spirit, community, and life.
“I am excited to bring my perspective and vision to build this fascinating world brought by Cinco de Mayhem. It’s not everyday that you get to be part of something as grand and unique as this,” enthuses New.
The General Santos City-born contemporary artist and young visionary has dabbled in different platforms.
New’s proclivity to the arts has propelled him to be trained as a sculptor, but his innate knack for transforming otherworldly ideas into thought-provoking and eye-catching pieces has brought him to try his hands on various mediums, from production design for film, wearable, sci-fi art for known fashion designers and muses including Lady Gaga, down to 3D mock ups for commercial purposes.
CDM will be headlined by local performers James Reid and Nadine Lustre, along with the rest of the Careless Music Manila crew. Go to www.cincodemayhem.com for more information.
