Mideo Cruz of CCP Art Exhibit 'Kulo' - Who is this Artist? (Picture)

Mideo Cruz, the man behind the controversial art "Poleteismo" in the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) earned negative reactions from Catholic groups this week.

This is after his controversial arts were posted in CCP "Kulo" exhibit which includes a wooden replica of male private parts in front of his face, a crucifix with a hanging and stretched condom, an image of christ with ink tear drops, among others.

University of Sto. Tomas (UST) through Vice Rector Pablo Tiong also criticized the works of Mideo Cruz. Quoted from the statements of Tiong,

"The University as an academic community and as a Catholic institution would also like to express that it is denouncing the sacrilegious or religious offensive art works included in the exhibit and all other artwork of similar nature. Moreover the said sacrilegious or religiously offensive artworks are nothing but a kind of artworks expected and or produced by unprofessional artist"
