Manila Synesthesia

Manila Synesthesia is Marius Black’s 5th solo show. It tackles the neurological condition known as synesthesia, where information is meant to stimulate one of the senses. Similarly, Marius, conjures Manila not just by portraying its people and citizens, but also by painting still life, flowers, cats and dogs, which reflect the identity of the city. Through his Manila Ukiyo-E Series, Marius Black uses color and poetry to tell stories about how we can still find beauty living in our lives in Manila no matter how hard and complicated it gets.
