Philip Leonard Ocampo is a queer Filipino artist and arts facilitator based in Tkaronto, Canada. Ocampo’s multidisciplinary practice primarily involves sculpture, installation, and public programming. His work usually explores phenomenon, magic, and memory, using the extraordinary as a conduit for reconciling and better understanding personal and collective experiences. Ocampo is interested in the allure of the unknown, and through this curiosity, seeks to access aspects of existence that are invisible, intangible, or inhuman in nature.
He holds a BFA in Digital Painting and Expanded Animation from OCAD University (2018) and is currently a Programming Coordinator at Xpace Cultural Centre and one of the four founding co-directors of Hearth.
