Superimposed on flat bold dimensions of color, artist Kiko Escora’s subjects occupy the space within thresholds of intimacy and violence that negotiate on the brash surfaces of the sensual . Their expressions, gestures, and poses are explicitly arrested under a vibe of pulsing unnerving energy. There are no abstractions, rather the manipulation of tones and the interplay of contours and flat silhouettes that situate them as the immediate, contemporary urban elite of Manila.
Kiko Escora is a prolific artist, taking on different media and interests. He has done graphic design, fashion, metal sculptures, abstractions and other sorts of installation. A visionary steward of Promethean underground, he derives inspiration from music, history, design and architecture to disasters, dreams, loved ones and lovers.
