Hersley Ven Casero, Foundation University’s resident artist, is set to stage a solo art exhibit at Space Encounters Gallery in Ortigas Center, Manila. Exhibit opens on January 21, Thursday, 6PM and runs until February 5.



On the Rocks is an extension of his exhibit during his stint at Chalk Hill Artist Residency in California held September last year. The works were inspired by the setting of his recent artist residency program – the geological history of the formation of the Warnecke Ranch and Vineyards.


In retrospect, Casero was among the 2019 participants for the Chalk Hill Artist Residency Program. The program provides opportunities for artists across various mediums to pursue creative work in a conducive space and time.


Foundation University, through its artist residency program, upholds the importance of the role of arts and culture in order “to educate and develop individuals to become productive, creative, useful and responsible citizens of society.”



In 2015, Casero was appointed as FU’s Resident Artist after his stint as a photographer with the Creative Department since 2006. Over the years, he has engaged in group art exhibitions both in local and regional galleries specifically in the country’s capital, Manila.
