Ralph Eya

Eya’s discipline intersects community activation, alternative education, and public art co-creation. Their praxis is in pursuit of re/humanization through creative processes that cultivate common identity and collectivism. With a trajectory of over a decade in artmaking, organizing, and advocacy, they have produced socially-engaged initiatives; led and facilitated development programs; and exhibited work in the Philippines and abroad, spanning cross-sectoral and intercultural collaborations that direct focus on peripheries, gaps, and the decentralization of art practice. Currently in their nomadic and independent inquiry on Mapping the System of the Senses, they are concentrating on the strategic integration of their artistic study in cultural relations and expansion while simultaneously exploring liminal spaces of human connections as a matrix of empathy that blur structures of power.
