Art Fair Philippines 2014

11:26:00 PM

I'm not even gonna try to pretend to have understood half of the things I saw at Art Fair Philippines 2014. Going from piece to piece, all I could think was ooh pretty, can I have this in my room? (Although if I were to steal something, it wouldn't be any of the stuff on display...heck, it wouldn't even be a something but a someone. Hihi.)

Now on its second year, Art Fair Philippines continues to build up public enthusiasm for the local art scene by featuring 28 of the country's foremost contemporary art galleries and seven solo exhibitions. Among all the listed spaces I've only been to Secret Fresh in Greenhills and this was a great way to be introduced to others.

I've had it pinned on my calendar for a few weeks now, but for some reason I had not bothered to look into details. I was surprised to see big names such as Kenneth Cobonpue and Benedicto "BenCab" Cabrera participating in the event. I'm sure there are other great talents in the lineup, but please please forgive me for not being familiar with, well, the rest. I've also done a pretty bad job at remembering who did what and titling thingimajigs, and if you can help me with it, that would be wonderful.

Now as much as I'd like to take you through our experience (with feelings and all), it just wouldn't be enough for me to share it with you this way. I believe this is something that you should see for yourself and support. It doesn't matter if you're not the type to frequent art happenings in the metro (I don't) or if your appreciation skills only range from what iz this to ooh colors, just go and embrace the ~pretty!

Here's a sampler!
