It was my first time at this art gallery - Art Informal. I didn’t originally plan to go but the exhibit included some awesome (as always) UP College of Fine Arts graduates that some of my block mates happen to be friends with. Kaladkarin ako that time, so there, I went. Haha! (and the fact that I cannot resist exhibitions, lol)
There were a lot of artists who took part in that exhibit. I forgot the theme of the exhibit, but the art works look pretty random to me. Still, they look nice individually. I liked a lot of works. This is a month-late post, but I just got to post some of their works!
I see my style at this art work - a bit edgy and vivid, yeah that’s me haha!
I find this photo installation very cool. I didn’t bother at first, but I started reading the caption inside a photo and in any random order that you read the caption in each of very photo, it still creates a sentence (a proper one) Haha!
Effort! Save the trees loljk!
Work above is by Maki, one of our friends!
Work above is by Chalk Zaldivar, if I’m not mistaken!
This one above is my favorite! I’m guessing this is Chalk’s work too. Linis!
P.S. Forgive me for being to busy, plates are on my way ☹ But I’m back now! ☺
And hey! If anybody out there who’s reading my blog right now would like to join me whenever I go to any art exhibit, don’t be shy to tell me! I noticed how few people go to art exhibits - let’s make them grow by numbers! And if you also blog about them, I would like to check out your blog! ☺

Tara McPherson gave a talk in UP College of Fine Arts Corredor Gallery! I didn’t really went to the talk because I had classes that time. I just wanted to share my photo with her because I think it would be inappropriate to post it with my Vinyl on Vinyl post. Haha! Yes I’m fan-girling!!!
With my fellow fan girls. Hello Ella, Chloe, and Camille!
Camille made Tara sign her book! I’ve got no book or artwork or anything to make her sign it to. I was thinking of making her sign on my butt. “Hey Tara can you sign on my butt?” Hahaha. Still on my bucket list of things to do!!!
And there’s us! She’s so cute, friendly, and kind in person! She has a lot of tattoos, which makes her cooler. I wish I had something to say to build up a conversation but I just knew her about a day ago when her talk was held - so I just told her that her art works are nice. Haha! Tara McPherson, you rock! ☺

“Tara McPherson has an exhibit here in Manila!” I was like, who the hell is she? Haha! I just knew her and her art on the very same day we went to her exhibit, and loved her already when I met her face to face. Haha lol! I’m not really a fan of gothic art and I have my very own definition for that - those skulls and hearts and whatever, those kind of dark elements present in an artwork, but she changed that for me. I can see the wit on her art, and she made those odd elements lighter by using a vivid color scheme that would identify her works. She drew her inspiration from her childhood issues and life experiences, too. I could go on and on and on, so might as well check out her works!
Me and my Painting block mates went to Vinyl on Vinyl Gallery at The Collective, Makati for Tara McPherson ‘s exhibit. It was very very very crowded, but I find ways to take pictures - with the help of my friends. Haha!
Below are are her works on graphite. And yes, most of them are sold already when we got there!
Photo above is one of my favorites. The details are amazing on the skulls - I puke rainbows!
I’m not sure if she made this sculpture above, but I think she did! It’s so cute! And I have a good feeling it’s already sold… She already!
Below are some of her huge digital poster art works. I can say I’m totally inspired because I was supposed to do a poster plate that day on one of my majors. Yeah, I’d rather go to an exhibit than do my plates - and I didn’t regret it!
The whole design of the poster is so nice. There are a lot of elements in the poster but it doesn’t look tacky and overworked. One of my favorites above!
If you look closely, the artists featured in that poster above are Kid Cudi, Sonic Youth, and just Death Cab for Cutie. Sila lang naman! Lol!
Below are some of her digital art works. I noticed how she often uses young and sexy girls as her subjects. Same goes here! Haha kidding!
She kind of shifted away from her usual color scheme, but I still like it!
My favorite artwork above because it’s so cute!!!
Didn’t get to watch the mini-concert going on inside the exhibit because it’s still crowded. Me and my Painting block mates chilled outside the gallery instead!
Haha thanks guys! We pledge to go to art exhibits more often! ☺
