Vivid: A Modern Mash-up Art Exhibit

Skillfully sculpted to entice the senses, art exhibits have been a go-to destination to satiate intellectual curiosity and creative intervention When In Manila. An intimate collision of beauty and perception, it gave people a way to engage and connect in all levels of social interation. Vivid is no exception.

Vivid: A Modern Mash-up Art Exhibit

Last December 3 and 4, at the heart of Ronac Art Centre within the walls of Secret Fresh Gallery, 13 creatively distinct individuals of ages 18 to 25 from De La Salle College of Saint Benilde delved outside the norms to express their diverse point-of-view. From photography to illustration, Vivid became a visual concoction of color, art and expression.

Backed up by neon lights and house music, it was as if the party came to town. Little did everyone know, it was a mixture of some sort (a potion, if you will) of fun, adventure and an abundance of imagination.

Now, let’s talk to some of the culprits. We’ve got 6 out of 13 (one was not around, by the way) to spare us a few moments of their time (It’s not a bad number, if you ask me).

First stop was Regina and Michael (In case you’re wondering, I had to do it by twos; one-on-ones can be pretty lonesome).

Michael, as far as I remember, is the illustrator. Don’t be deceived by his smile and light personality, his art borders dark and tangled thoughts (but I’m not a psychology student so you can dismiss that idea). Funny thing is, as dark as his art may seem; it can’t help but draw you in.

This was the artwork sold even before the exhibit!

He already sold one of his artworks (I believe that speaks for itself).

Then there’s Regina, the girl with the camera (maybe on fire, as well), or at least, that is what she’s perceived to be.

Regina is an aspiring photographer who picked up from her brother’s passion for photography. Diving head first into the tricky world of lifestyle and events, she aims to perfect her art one-shot-at-a-time.

And what do you know, she’s got the genes for it, too.

On to the next pair… 

Nhicole and Patrick are both passionate in photography (And yes, her name does go with an ‘h’. Swag for the parents!)

Nhicole started telling stories thru her lens after getting her first camera. It wasn’t love at first sight for her. But with a few trial and errors and a little exploration along the way, she finally gave in to its allure.

Aside from photography, Nhicole also loves web coding, videography and graphic illustrations.

Hoping to deliver a new kind of creative in fashion, she’s one firecracker ready for the brawl.

And it’s not without a cause (I’m sure you’ll do great in fashion). 

Unlike Nhicole, Patrick started out learning the language before putting himself to the test. Photography grew on him before he even realized his love for it.

He take photos as a way of expressing himself and baring himself to the world.

Quoting his words, “I just go with the flow and take pictures of whatever I want.”

He must really love shoes…

A self-proclaimed minimalist, he takes his art as it goes.
