Before everything else, I would like to invite everyone to boost up their artsy minds and come to MANILART 2011, the 3rd Philippine International Art Fair. Happening on August 25-27 at the NBC Tent, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. They will showcase over 300 artworks from the top art galleries in the Philippines. Manilart is the biggest review of Philippine art. I think it's time to appreciate this talent of our Filipino artist and visit Manilart.
So last Thursday, we were invited to attend the Manilart talk 101 at the Secret Fresh, Ronac Art Center. Manilart Project Director Delan Robillos did the opening remarks. He told us many things about art appreciation.
Art director Robert Bjorn Santos of Fatima University shared a lot of things that night. He showed us some of his magnificent artwork collections. This one on the picture is one of my favorites. It is a small painting of a crumpled paper. I love how the painter showed the details with the use of color in this crumpled paper. At first, the audience didn't recognized it until Mr. Robert said. I love how he framed his artwork collections. It makes the artwork more attactive. It is also a great way to preserve a certain artwork.
I also like this artwork. It is entitled, if I'm not mistaken "Pagmamano". It's a figure of a little boy doing "mano" as a sign of respect to his elder.
The interactive part of the night is the time when we're asked to draw a Self-Portrait in a sandpaper using crayons. They're the artists showing us how to do a self portrait.
