Bueza’s artworks are manipulated images from his imagination, a deliberate cropping and fragmenting of familiar forms – and then merged into layered juxtapositions of colour, pattern, and form.
Bueza plays with visual distortion – a disturbance of textual arrangements and transgressions of capitalist symbols. A critique of starry-eyed and quixotic affinity, these juxtapositions not only highlight flaws within the current system and the deceitfulness of existing structures, but also attempt to suggest a new order.
Bueza studied Painting at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts. He was the Grand Prize winner at the 40th Shell Students’ Art Competition (Oil/Acrylic category) and a finalist in the Tanaw: Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Painting Competition.
