Art Expo in Manila: #EncountersPH

[Art Expo in Manila Featured Image by Mary Jane Sadiasa] Pictures of bus tickets on canvas. Images reminiscent of a textured leather upholstery in some SUV’s. Art that presented the beloved city of Manila in full color in various mediums. Such are the images to be expected at the collaborative effort called Encounters PH.

Encounters is a group show presenting the works of Lester Babiera, Mark Evan Lopez, Romsanne Ortiguero and Jasmine Cruz. Various images with one central theme – travel. Tourism was one of the industries that boomed. And it only served as a fitted exhibit to present the kind of encounters [pun intended] that tourists from all walks of life stumbled upon. This Art Expo in Manila features works that emphasized mobility in the 21st Century.

The aforementioned Art Expo in Manila officially opened to the public last 21 November 2015 at 6pm. Here, paintings by Jasmine Cruz were included among the artworks exhibited for the audience to see. Commuters can easily relate to her bus ticket artwork. Not everyone may have SUV’s for roaming the metro. But everyone surely can commute. Cruz got some nostalgia revved up with her cute piece.

Street photography is also found here at iChill for the Art Expo in Manila. The black-and-white treatment applied on the photos add drama and allure to otherwise ordinary objects. Who would have thought a cat’s beauty in serenity is highlighted in a B&W photo? It also added a romantic feel to images of a lamp light. The same haunting beauty is seen on a captured photo of what seems like a one-way street. Some streets in Manila turned out to be lovely if given the B&W treatment in street photography.

Art is meant to be an expression. This is how it turned out to be at Encounters PH. The Art Expo in Manila that you should go into. Nothing too emotional but sentimental enough in reminiscing about the Manila not romanticized as often as it should anymore. Artists that joined the Encounters PH Art Expo in Manila presented their outlook on their own travels (presumably) in these works of art. No wonder mixed media became the appropriate term eventually. Of course, appreciating art is enjoyed best by having a tall tumbler of chilled coffee.
