I was sorting my photo archives and looking for something to write, when I stumbled these beautiful images I have during my museum visit in 2014.
Yep these are in 2014 and almost 3-years ago.
It was one of the most anticipated exhibit during that time and I thought I couldn’t make it to the exhibit, but hey I did! Luckily it Ayala Museum offered audience for free admission.
She’s been painting since her childhood days, but only in 2014 she made her creations made open to the public. Her creations are one of the kind full of love and colors, and it’s hard not to notice them.
And I remember then (as I’ve been following her works) that these pieces that are displayed are already considered sold weeks before the opening, and just displayed in Ayala Museum for the sake of the engagement. And that’s amazing!
Because of her beautiful creations and also influence, her works are became talk-of-the-town. In 2016, she also have another exhibit of her collection, however I didn’t make it to visit because it’s quite far from my place. And I have a feeling that she will have another exhibit very soon, so I have o hold-on for that excitement. That way, it will be more exciting!
I've also posted previously her, behind-the-scene when she's making her first series years ago!
Like I’ve said it is very hard not to notice her works because of tons of colors! I love these kind of paintings, and not a huge fan of abstract and sad feeling from their paintings. With her works, you see passion, love, hope, a high-spirited woman who is ready to face any challenges. You could also see her life through her paintings, how happy her childhood is, and her glitz and glamorous lifestyle.
She inspires the many, including me to push boundaries and discover the potentials, and embrace womanhood. I was actually thinking of learning how to paint, but due to many distractions, I have now – I can’t make it yet.. but I know I will soon!
Love Marie Ongpauco-Escudero. Yeah she’s a darling of the crowd and the media love her. And wouldn’t be? And seems she doesn’t age a bit. I wonder what her beauty secrets are!
She was also present in the POND’s Institute White Party but I haven’t got a chance to introduce myself and request for a photo opp. Anyway there will be always a next time, and I know it will be more fruitful.
Next time I’ll share you some of her creations using Hermes bag as her canvass. Yes! The exact uber-expensive Hermes bag that every ladies are dying for. She first did it to her Hermes when her bag was accidentally stained and can’t be repaired, so she painted it instead!
She also have her public exhibition, happening now until March 28, 2017 at SM Megamall, so if you have free time, feel free to drop-by and check her creations.
She's a clever girl, right?
