Also I can’t deny the fact that summer in the Philippines also means more colorful weekends, brought by numerous festivals and also numbers of city art exhibits.

One of hobbies I always enjoy is visiting art galleries and public exhibits – a good reason to keep myself updated to the art trends and style concepts.

  2. This would be a great place for us to visit however I think we have missed out on it. We will be in Manila from the 1st of October and we leave on the 18th for the TBEX Blogging Convention. We would love to meet you if you will be there. The art in the exhibit really was nice. I especially like the third group of pictures with the dancers.

    1. Hi! If you'll be here for the TBEX, you might like to extend your vacation and visit the bi-annual MANILA FAME, an exhibit and tradeshows of arts, furniture and designs located in World Trade Center in Pasay City, near your convention site. Manila Fame is this October 20 to 22, 2016.

  10. I stayed in Makati when I was in the Phils, and there always seemed to be something going on there, but sadly I didn't see this. Although it wouldn't be the Philippines without food nearby.

  11. These artworks are really cool. We have soem fairs in Manchester too and they seel amazing prints and artworks. That apart we have the annual poster sale. I find it great to stroll around the part and have a look at the artworks . Its nice that you were allowed to photograph them cause in many places there are copyright restrictions.

      There are also students who joined this event and sells their artworks.. A good way to earn extra bucks for students while spending their school break :D

  13. I love modern art that is still understandable. Sometimes artists go so far away that you don't understand a thing, but it seems like these artists made a great job. Anyway, it seems like the perfect way to spend a day!

      Yeah I do! I also help new artists to promote their works and help them organized this kind of exposures :D

  16. It's great that young talented artists are given the opportunity to exhibit their work in the park. I would like to visit such an open space exhibition. It reminds me of the art market in Havana - Cuba, but also of Pizza Navona in Rome - Italy, where artists paint while people pass by and admire their work.

    1. Hello Veronica!

      The art pieces ranges from Php200 to Php50,000 (approx. US$4.00 to US$1,040) the bigger the piece, the more expensive.. No art pieces sells more than 50K. So this is a great way to buy affordable art :D

      Delete
  21. Oh I am such a sucker for street art festivals. I spend way too much money at these things. There are so many pieces that I would want to buy if I had been there. It is really nice to experience the art through your lens and to not have the temptation to buy everything myself!
