Louie Cordero’s paintings are informed by the complex political history of the Philippines. Depicting monsters and zombies from Filipino mythology, Cordero includes blood, gore, and military imagery to reflect the eclectic and often violent mix of indigenous culture with American, Spanish, and Asian legacies. In defining his aesthetic, Cordero is drawn to diverse sources, including kitsch, Indian advertising, American B-movies, and pulp fiction.
