What started as a small gathering to “decorate” one of the rooms ended up in long and serious discussions about the local graffiti scene, punk/DIY culture, and lowbrow art. I’m thankful to be surrounded by such beautiful and creative minds.

Literally a breath of fresh air

Author: admin  |  Category: Uncategorized

All I’ve been doing the past few weeks was sit in front of the desk/monitor for hours, alternating between work and “play” (play with the PS3, that is). A trip to the countryside last Friday with some of my old friends from USC College of Fine Arts was a welcome breather. Around 60 artists, a mix of students and professionals, participated in the yearly on-the-spot “en plein air” oil painting competition in Gaas Balamban, Cebu. The pictures below don’t even speak enough of how beautiful the place is.

I didn’t join the contest. The plan was to relax and enjoy the scenery,  so I didn’t bring any painting materials. Seeing how fun the artists were having through painting made me realize too late that I should’ve armed myself with more than just a sketchpad and some pencils. Nevertheless, I learned a lot just looking at other people work and talking with painters whose line of work is very different from mine.
