Continuing our gallery-hopping that day when we went to The College Boys Exhibit, we went to the exhibit of my block mate Enzo’s brother! I wasn’t expecting that there were two exhibitors in the gallery. Seems to be that the other guy who exhibited is my other block mate Erika’s boy friend. Haha! Let’s go UP College of Fine Arts!
We went to Boston Gallery near Cubao. I enjoyed this exhibit a lot because of all the paintings that I saw. It’s not usual that I observe a painting close enough to kiss it. It just happens when I’m really interested with it. On the first floor of the gallery, I got to discover Edrick Daniel’s paintings. I wonder why I never heard of him because his works are good. I don’t know but there’s a certain feeling that his paintings gave me, and I love it when that happens. Lol! You get to connect with what the artist feels when he painted it. There’s also a story behind each one of them. Or maybe that’s just me…
The above painting kinda looks like my block mate! Cool. I love the colors he used.
I love this painting above. I see love!
On the second floor, I saw the works of one of my favorite Social Realist. I’m personally a fan of Guerrero Habulan’s paintings. His works remind me of my favorite artist’s paintings, Ronald Ventura. I love how you can tell a story from his paintings and that he uses hyper realism in all of them. Oh, and the fact that he uses people as subjects on his paintings. You can actually tell what his exhibit is about just by looking at his works. I love what the artist stated on the white essay-like writing I don’t know what to call. It just captures the essence of his exhibition.
“Man has become a stranger to his own nation, even to himself. “
“Standards of perfection are set by artificial beings: dolls, mannequins with porcelain skin, and thin figures.” And what make me like this painting even more is the meaning behind it.
My favorite painting above! The details are too awesome and it’s terribly huge! If I had the money, I swear I’d keep this.
Oh there, these two blondes again! Thanks Jan and Hanako! Mukha kayong art critic diyan haha!
Then there’s me. I hate posing in front of an art work but I really liked the painting! Haha! Do visit the Boston Art Gallery in 72 Boston St. Cubao. The exhibit ends tomorrow! ☺
