Joliz Dela Peña
Joliz Dela Peña, also known as JDP 2009, is an interdisciplinary artist from the Philippines who now lives in Tiohtià: ke/Montreal. She is a self-taught artist whose mediums of choice range from painting to performance to alternative photography. Despite the constant change in her practice, she specifically explores the theme of discomfort and social constructions among people of color. She uses her art and body as a bridge to address issues of social injustice, stereotypes, sexuality and eroticism, and the celebration of her cultural roots.
