late post: via Russ Ligtas website 

Five exhibitions—Anatomical Trajectories, Displacement, Lead Lightning, Teeth of the Mouth, The Queen’s Resurrection—open at the The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences on June 18, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. The contemporary regional art exhibition features the artworks of renowned abstract expressionists Tito Cuevas, Karl Roque, Sio Montera, and Vidal Alcoseba, Jr.; sculptor Ritchie Quijano; and graffiti artist Kidlat of The Junks Collective, performance artist Russ Ligtas, social realist Marvin Chito L. Natural, and surrealist Palmy Pe-Tudtud.

Anatomical Trajectories by Palmy Pe-Tudtud showcases recent pieces that reflect a personal narrative using a scientifically surreal streak. Displacement is composed of works by Marvin Chito L. Natural who creates a commentary on Cebu society. Lead Lightning features Kidlat of The Junks Collective, resonating their strong vandalistic force in the heart of a different city. Teeth of the Mouth, the fourth show, consists of video performances of butoh artist Russ Ligtas. The last show, The Queen’s Resurrection, is a collection of highlights from the artistic careers of Tito Cuevas, Karl Roque, Sio Montera, Ritchie Quijano, and Vidal Alcoseba Jr., present-day Cebuano artists who dominate the local art scene.

Curated by JV Castro, Contemporary Cebu will run from June 18, 2011 to August 14, 2011 at The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences, 119 L.P. Leviste Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City. Contemporary Cebu is co-presented by Alternative Contemporary Art Studio, Casa Gorordo Museum, Gothong Southern Lines, and the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Inc.

Tie One

Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California.

Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts.
