Art Gallery Hopping: Pophaus and Arturo Luz

Even though I lack sleep and energy, still pushed through to go to an exhibit because of a friend. Hann, our newest workmate (graphic designer under Digital and Animations), is a fresh grad of Multimedia Arts of College of Saint Benilde (#animo!) and she invited us to an exhibition of her friends in Makati.

Pophaus, A Modern Art Shack is an exhibit done by student artists from CSB. They showcased digital art focused on Modern Pop references.

Derived from the site:

This exhibition of new works on wood and metal likewise points to different trajectories of the abstract. Luz imbues geometry with physical presence through creating modular forms, grids, cubes and blocks, standing solidly in space. He also indulges in the play of monochromatic surfaces and patterns, denoting a carnivalesque dance of shadow and light. Other objects alternately recall primitivist and prehistoric totems and pay homage to artistic personalities associated with the development of abstraction. These contradictions create archetypes and votive markers of both the forgotten past and the contemporary present.

And before I forget, here are the people I was with, Santa and Hann (never mind the other guy).

Just shows talent knows no age, whether you are just starting or already a legend in the field of art. Makes me excited with seeing more art exhibits in the future and probably an exhibit of my own in the future. Right? 🙂
