Reniel Del Rosario

Reniel Del Rosario (born Iba, Philippines) is an artist who works primarily in ceramics. His practice is often paired with humor and installation with finished works often ending in large numbers of ceramic objects made to reference, look like, and critique various already-existing objects from history, art history, and pop culture in imperfect copies. His projects have ranged from mimicking businesses to reimagining lost cultural artifacts to replicating the mundane and banal in alternative and 'odd' compositions. Throughout all his work, Reniel aims to entertain and bewilder audiences with the fusion of familiarity and absurdity. He is currently based in Vallejo, CA, en route to Sonoma, CA, to be the Artist in Residence at Sonoma Ceramics later this month.
