Artist Leeroy New with one of his sculptures

Leeroy New | In The Studio

Artist Leeroy New invites us behind the scenes of making Balete Spacecraft – his new installation that lands in the Social at Aviva Studios for The Welcome. Taking familiar materials and transforming them into an alien-like structure, Leeroy talks us through the influences of Philippine traditions and sci-fi aesthetics on his work. Also a commentary on consumerism, watch Leeroy work with single-use plastics collected in Manchester and weave them into something magical.
