ManilArt 2012: Blogger's Tour



Taken from their facebook page


At the last minute, I was able to register for this walk and I am anticipating that I would be in for a visual treat. When I got to SMX and registered, I kinda felt lost with so many artworks displayed. 



Itinerary of the tour


Being the country's only art fair, I expect nothing less here at ManilArt and well, two hours of the tour won't be enough. The exhibit was from October 2-6 so I hope you were able to visit and appreciate just like I did. 


Mr Robert Santos (Curator of the Fatima University Gallery) facilitated the tour designed for students and enthusiasts alike. There are more than 40 exhibits to visit but for the tour, we will be going to only 15. The route of the tour would be different from the other as each route would feature a different set of galleries. Not a bad idea especially for people who love works of art. 


Here are some of my unedited shots during the blogger's tour. 




Big and Small Gallery's Crack in the Hull by Ronald Ventura


 

Gallery Big's Mariveles by Joya



Ever wonder how much this Amorsolo painting is?



Gallerie Stephanie's Introduction to Evolution by Villaseran



Gallerie Francesca's Unli in the Philippines by Obemio



Republikha's End of the Black Inhearitance by Elopre. This artwork took 18 months to complete as its mostly composed of feathers. And the picture you see is not the entire art piece. =P



Our tour facilitator informing us with bits and pieces of each artwork



JIV Manila Art's Installation of lightboxes by VJ Villafranca



More works of art



And more work's of Art XD






Juan Archival's Major Major bu Culaba



Explaining the artwork at Galleria Dumelia



Gallery Nine's Siete de Agosto by Romulo Galicano


But wait! There's more!!! XD. I'll keep updating this until I'm done. XD




























I almost forgot, I went back last Friday for a 4-hour tour by myself with almost a thousand photographs taken. Just stay tuned. XD

  7. Wow! I specifically loved JIV Manila Art's Installation of lightboxes. We actually have several painter friends. But one that actually stands out is our friend Mimi Tecson. Just like the light boxes, she also the same art. Mixed media is her thing. :) By the way, your selection of photos to take were incredible artworks! :)

  10. I love that Juan Archival Major Major art, depicts an ordinary filipino waitress which mirrors a reality.

    1. Ypu. But instead of a filipina waitress, that was for a beauty queen. Hence the title Major-major. :D

  27. I'm a frustrated artist myself. I won first place in an on-the-spot painting contest when I was in first year high school. But, I don't know why all of a sudden, I have deleted that inclination in my mind and never pursued it.

    These are wonderful masterpieces.
