The Artwalk Experience
Recently I decided to take photo from this artwork and want to share this with you. It was a fun and very memorable time capturing those images. Being crafted to perfection I also tried to capture it the best way I can interpret in photo. I spend two days to get photos for all those artwork because of the limited time. All I can say is that, the time spent was all worth it.
Here are the photos and hope you can appreciate it guys! If you have some time, try to take the artwalk and discover the beauty of the art loving city. Mabuhay!
Crafted by Reynato Paz Contreras, The Trees is a canopy of three interlocking trees which stand as testament to Mother Earth and her strong, unifying nature.
Ang Supremo is Ben-Hur G. Villanueva's tribute to Andres Bonifacio and the working class hero's struggle for the nation's freedom. Three-meters tall and made from brass and bronze, the statue is a silent tribute to the city’s inspiring namesake.
Kasaysayan Bawat OrasKasaysayan Bawat Oras by Juan Sajid de Leon Imao is a 16-meter brass and cement sculpture, which is also a sundial with seven paper like dolls representing the 7,100 islands of the Philippines.
Kasalikasan (a play on kasali ka sa kalikasan, or you are part of nature) is Jerry Araos' respite to worn out city souls – a garden designed for small gatherings, private parties, or simple retreats for individuals seeking rest.
Bearable Lightness is a collaborative artwork between painter Ronald Achacoso and sculptor Reg Yuson. It is a cantilevered structure with centrifugal patterns of elementary colors suggesting a state of perpetual lightness. The intriguing mesh of painting and sculpture can be mounted by observers via a platform designed to communicate the tensions between gravity and weightlessness, surface and depth.
Presence, by Reg Yuson, is an installation of 20 free-standing floor chimes. The idea is to nudge the individual chimes to produce sounds that invite good vibes to fill the park.
