Ronald Ventura (b. 1973) is a Filipino contemporary artist who has had key exhibitions in museums and galleries all over the world. He is famous for his signature style of combining images from Philippine folk art, Asian symbols, pop culture icons, and historical references. Layered in a dizzying tableau or combined in playful, unexpected ways, images in Ventura’s art reflect the multiple facets of Philippine culture and identity.

At Ayala Museum and Filipinas Heritage Library, we believe that our art and history illustrate that we Filipinos are brave, resilient, creative, and caring people. Since first opening to the public in 1974 as a project of Filipinas Foundation, Inc. (now Ayala Foundation, Inc.), the museum and library continued to activate a sense of pride in what makes us uniquely Filipino through our collections and exhibitions. Now, after more than two years of renovation and in keeping with rapidly evolving technology, Ayala Museum and Filipinas Heritage Library begin a new phase. We’ve become phygital—enhancing refreshed physical exhibition, event, and retail spaces with digital technology—to complete an entirely new museum experience.
