Me and Camille has always been art exhibit buddies back when I was still in Painting. For me, being inside an art gallery or any art event feels like home. You’re in a room full of people with the same interests and the art works hanged on the wall or in display just makes me feel fulfilled. Haha!
Well, anyway. We’ve waited so long for this exhibit! I’m not really a big fan of skulls and other gory subjects and shit but I know Camille has been dying to see this and being that art exhibit fanatic, I joined her. Haha! I got intoxicated with skulls!
It was my first time going to the Secret Fresh Gallery, and boy it does look fresh. Would want to exhibit there someday! The art works aren’t labeled, but there were about 50 artist who joined the exhibit. I wish I knew which art work they did!
Dia De Los Muertos means “Day of the Dead” and it’s a Mexican holiday. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Pretty much explains why they used a lot of skulls and bones as the main itema for the exhibit. All of the works were really colorful. Here are some!
I’m assuming they used a mold for the skulls because they all look the same to me in measurement. I was expecting a lot of paintings from the exhibit, but this is just better. I’m starting to like skulls!
I wonder why Camille wasn’t a part of the exhibit. Her art is so similiar to what I just saw. This work above reminds me so much of her. I hope she’s reading this haha!
I love those three skulls above, and below, and the one above that, and the other one, and oh, that one too! Haha I love how clean they painted those skulls. Not one skull looked the same as the other. You gotta love the skill!
Here are some of the paintings featured in the exhibit. Cool stuff. These made me miss painting!
Check this out! I’d buy this jacket if it were on sale. Haha!
Love those three paintings above. My favorite piece in the entire exhibit!
The exhibit runs from October 23 until November 8. Great stuff! Better check it out if you have time. ☺ Thank you Camille and Roman for bringing me there!

I wasn’t really hyped with the thought of the opening night of our exhibit a first. But as I arrived at the Sining Kamalig Gallery, my heart skipped a beat just by seeing the amount of visitors that went to our exhibit. I didn’t really expect much about it, but I was wrong. The opening night was just so epic. I really felt touched with the people who keep on asking me about my work, and also those who took pictures of our works. Haha! It just goes to show that our hard work was worth it. I’m really happy and proud with my block mates since we did a really good job showcasing our works. Thank you for everyone who went!
That’s my uncle, my lola, my mom, my tita and tito right there. Thanks uncle for the flowers!
I’m seriously looking forward to another block exhibit. It was really fun! I hope my block mates would still consider me even though I’m shifting. Camille, hindi talaga ako nagpaparinig. Haha kidding! I love you guys!
Our sincere gratitude to Professor Vinluan for giving us the chance to do this. Thank you Sining Kamalig and block mates! You made it all worthwhile. :D

This was my entry on our block exhibit “Fresh Meat”. I had a hard time doing this because of the lack of time and preparation, but I still did it! It was also my first time to paint in a scale of this size, so I was overwhelmed at first. If you could only just imagine what I look like after I finished it, haha! I got really inspired after I made this, and after seeing the success of our block exhibit, I kind of want to stay in Studio Arts. (tears…kidding!)
That’s me and my painting. How awkward do I look like! That’s my signature on the bottom-right corner! Thanks to my mom who stayed up all night with me while I was doing my painting. She just witnessed how I work, and she didn’t really like how I was bumming around every now and then. Hahaha! Cheers anyway! ☺
