Chavez's work consistently infuses heavy political commentary with meticulous artistic skill. He was recently nominated as 'one of the top 20 artists under 35 in Australia' by an independent panel of curators and arts writers assembled by Art Melbourne, and hung as an Archibald Prize finalist in 2009 for his portrait of Richard Bell at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. His recent exhibition, Live Fast Die Young adds to his significant repertoire of work, but in this case looks at the social affections of cockfighting as a brutal, but still cultural, sport. It retains notable popularity, and hence legality, in the Philippines still.
