Hello guys, I’m back! It’s been a while since I posted any blog entry related to art. I really miss Tumblr! I was really busy finishing my paintings, my plates, and I was busy studying (stu-dying) haha kidding! I just hope every bit of that time I dedicated would pay off. I’m going to post a lot after I’m done with this semester. ☺
Me and my block mates have been working hard for our first block exhibit for some time now, and I’d totally appreciate it if you would come and see what we’ve been working on. Here is our passion and what we do in the name of art. As we enter the art scene and show our talents as young artists, take a gander at our works of art. I invite everyone to our block’s exhibit!
An art exhibit by the 1st-year Block-Y Studio Arts students of the University of the Philippines Diliman, College of Fine Arts
Time Saturday, April 9, 2011 · 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Location Sining Kamalig Gallery (Level 4, Gateway Mall, Araneta Center Cubao QC)
I hope you guys would come and visit! It would make our dreams ☺ I sincerely thank my professor, Nestor Olarte Vinluan, for making this happen. You the man, sir!! ☺
For more details, please message me in my Tumblr Ask. ☺ Thank you so much!

Some time last year, me and some of my block mates went to this pretty dope exhibit featured in one of my professor’s curated exhibit when we last came in Sining Kamalig, Gateway. Good thing, I saw the flyer once again while I was browsing photos in my camera.
This, by far, was the coolest exhibit I’ve even been to. I swear, anybody who would go to see it would never want to leave the place after roaming around. If you could only see our faces while we were looking at the paintings, hindi maipinta mukha namin. Lol.
I totally agree with the above statement. Mini-heart attack ongoing.
I’m not really a fan of hyperrealism, but these paintings got me dumbfounded. One thing I love about the exhibit is the concept of their works. I like the agressive attitude with a bit of eeriness in it. Shit, I want to paint something like these.

These are just some of the paintings in the exhibit that I really like. If I had a million dollars, I’d probably buy every painting in the gallery. At the moment, I’ll just be catching inspiration from those artists. Someday, I will be as good as them!
Oh and by the way, we will be doing our very own bock exhibit here around February or March! I’m so stoked.

This is it! I came to CFA late since the jeepney lane going to UP Campus is barely moving, and every taxi I try to wave at is occupied. I have no choice to but to walk… Lol jk. Layo amp. I rode a taxi after 30 minutes of waiting.
I don’t want to fail to catch the chance to see the other college’s floats and lanterns that will parade around the campus, so there. Me and my other blockmate literally “escaped” (or rather, sneaked) our way out of CFA just to take photos of every float we see. Kasi kami dapat magmamanage ng float namin, so at the end ng parade, kami pa rin ‘yung pagod. Rawrr. Eh madaya ako eh, hehe.
We filed our way around the acad oval. Just imagine how wasted and tired we were that night…but all is well. We did great!
Sorry for not putting proper labels on some floats. I can’t remember whose college owned it. Basta picture lang nang picture. Hehe.
Para sa mga hindi pumunta ng Lantern Parade.. :| I’ll show you half of your life that you missed. Loljk!
My blockmates, along with our tie-dyed costume!
Second yr painting!
Second year Viscomm! (Tama diba?)
Materials class Professor Jamel!
Fine Arts will be the last to parade. I wonder why… Hihi :D
1st yr Viscomm majors.
1st yr ID majors.
Isaac Sion. Lol. My FA cousin! 4th yr painting majors are assigned to be a fish (As in, sila ‘yung mismong paparade with fish costume. Cute!)
Other colleges spotted in front on The Oblation.
College of Education
This float most probably belongs to the Chemistry Department.
CHK. I forgot to take a picture of Manny Pacquiao. Sayang.. Lol
Back to FA…
I’m seeing two Lady Gagas. Lol.
Block Z. Hi!
Finally I am in the picture! Lol hahaha.
Last stop at the Quezon Hall. Hindi ko masabi kung ilan ‘yung tao na nandito, pero para kaming nasa stage habang nagcoconcert tapos sila ‘yung audience eh. Ganun ‘yung feeling. Ganun kadami. Grabe lang!
First Lantern Parade: Success. Kahit super pagod, fulfilled naman. Yay! Thank you rin pala sa mga taong nagpapicture sa float namin. Looking forward to next year. Excited much? Haha!
P.S. At sino ba kasi ‘yung mga sumigaw ng “We love you Pau Villanueva” sa tapat ng Palma Hall? Umamin ka! Lol. Love you too! Hehehe.
Pau Villanueva graduated from St. Theresa's College, QC. She's now studying at the University of the Philippines Diliman, taking up Visual Communication course at the College of Fine Arts.
I take a lot of photos, and I talk too much. Works are mine unless specified!
