Philip Leonard Ocampo
Philip Leonard Ocampo is a queer Filipino artist and arts facilitator based in Tkaronto, Canada. Ocampo’s multidisciplinary practice primarily involves painting, sculpture, writing and public programming. His work usually explores phenomenon, magic, and memory, using the extraordinary to reconcile and better understand personal and collective experiences; often through a diasphoric focus. Ocampo is interested in the poetics of information and the allure of the unknown. Through this curiosity, he seeks to access aspects of existence that are invisible, intangible, or inhuman in nature.
He holds a BFA in integrated Media from OCAD University (2018) and is currently a Programming Coordinator at Xpace Cultural Centre and one of the four founding co-directors of Hearth.
