Having lived and worked at numerous places globally, Manuel Ocampo is easily adopted as the poster child for multiculturalism and identity politics. He is known for his bold, controversial references to politics, religion and race, as he utilises a wide range of popular iconography like the swastikas, crucifixes, teeth, feces, flowers, and emoticons.

Ocampo is the recipient of several prestigious accolades, including the 'National Endowment for the Arts', 'Rome Prize in Visual Arts', 'Reader’s Digest Artists at Giverny Program' and 'The Pollock-Krasner Foundation'. Manuel Ocampo has also pioneered a series of exhibitions that surveys current practices from the Philippines. This programme, headlined as 'Bastards of Misrepresentation', has been presented in institutions in Berlin, New York and Sete.
