to my future biographer, you’re welcome. HAHA *feeler*

NOW, back to ArtFairPH15 : it was a 4 day event so (for the convince of it all) let’s segregate this post by days.

The first day started at about 230 PM but it was only for VIPs, which I found out that morning that I was not.

totally cool, no problem ha ha

anyway, my date and I went had dinner so that’s always a plus. She referred to People’s Palace as affordable — yeah. as you guessed, she’s not an (starving) artist hahaha

Screen shot 2015-06-08 at 12.25.05 PM

Us again trying to tell Mang Jaimer (gallery’s driver. yeah ~fancy name. haha)  to take a decent picture of us with my work. I guess he preferred tita Elaine’s work. haha

I wasn’t able to go around that much that day and also on the second day — too busy mingling. ha ha

My sister and I allotted the day 3 to really look at each booth. Telling you guys now : WRONG MOVE. Remember most Galleries change their displays everyday. 

Let’s move on. Here’s to better life choices in 2016. But yey, we have half a year to make bad choices. 

ZEAN CABANGIS – he had a solo show under Art Informal.

which are not really helpful because I forgot to take note of the names.

I remember Alwin from his show in West Gallery the year before and I really liked it. If you saw it, well this show is similar but on steroids. (bigger, more stuff, more everything)

Part of my “to own in the future” list. Either to buy or steal from my dad’s haha kidding.


Screen shot 2015-06-22 at 8.24.23 PM

There were some international galleries. Surprised that there were a few because I didn’t know we (the Philippines) were in their radar. Plus this fair was about Philippine contemporary art but no hating here. I was just surprised.


Screen shot 2015-06-22 at 8.33.16 PM

This is where I bought my first art fair purchase! Well, it was just a patch.


Screen shot 2015-06-22 at 8.43.07 PM

This was the first year (from my knowledge) that the Drawing Room focused on one artist.

They actually sold those coconuts but not sure if for 20 Euros.

one of my favorites : artist, person and show

These 2 were the pieces most commented at by my friends (who mostly don’t frequent art exhibits).

Screen shot 2015-06-26 at 11.19.30 PM

It was generally the many variations of “art ba yan?” Well. This debate can go on forever.
