INK on Paper Exhibit
I recently went to the Ink on Paper exhibit at the Prism Gallery in Legaspi Village Makati. I’m such a big fan of INK! I’ve seen their members’ works at other art exhibits like the Art Fair at the Salcedo Park Makati last March. Their booth was one of the popular spots in the art fair!
Every time I read a Filipino children’s book these days, I would tell my mom that I love the illustration of the book and my mom would often tell me, “I think the illustrator is an INK member!”
INK stands for Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan. It is an association of artists committed to the creation and promotion of illustrations for children. INK was founded in June 1991 during a Children’s Book Illustration workshop sponsored by the Philippine Board on Books for Young People and the Goethe-Institut Manila. They have a joke at the start that INK meant Inihaw na Kambing.
I was so charmed by the art made from paper cutouts at the exhibit.
Here are some of my favorites from the exhibit:
- Cover-up by Pergy Acuña (2014, Paper Cutouts)
- Cut and Paste by Liza Flores (2014, Paper Cutouts)
- Acrobats by Jamie Bauza (2014, Watercolor and Digital)
- Between the Lines by Kay Aranzanso (2014, Digital)
- Para sa Magsing-Irog by Al Estrella (2014, Clay)
- A Charming Narrative by Jonathan Rañola (2014, Acrylic and Pen)
- Sanaysay at Makinilya by Kora Dandan-Albano (Mixed Media)
You still have time to visit the Ink on Paper exhibit, it runs until June 30, 2015 at the Prism Gallery (Ground Floor, Island Tower Condominium, 239 Salcedo Street Makati). To know more about INK and their members, visit www.ang-ink.org.
