Leeroy New is a Manila-based multidisciplinary artist whose practice overlaps and intersects with various creative industries: fashion, filmmaking, theatre, public installations, product design, and performance. This inclination to harness different modes of creative production has become the spine of his practice driven by concepts of world building, myth-making, and social change. His work manifests in large-scale spatial constructions and ‘otherworldly’ bodies that make use of available collected materials and discards.
