About Philip


Philip Munoz is a self-taught painter who graduated with a degree in biochemistry from the University of Bristol.

Philip explains his work by saying, “My work is concerned with the notion of glamour and its role in social identity. I am particularly interested in the idea of beauty through transformation and the concept of the contemporary sublime. Digital photography is an essential tool in my work. It creates an emotional platform to connect with the subject, whilst the staging and the artificiality of a photo shoot serve to enhance the visual language of the imagery and the subsequent portrait. In the last year or so, my work has increasingly focused on creating portraits and figures immersed in the “urban” context. Whether a close up examination of the glamorous and modified, adorned with tattoos and piercings or a figure caught in a fleeting moment of city life.”
