Monster October Recap

October was a crazy month for the Streetkonect team, but with all the recent chaos and happenings that went down on us, we decided that there were more important matters to attend to and recap October later.

So now since things are a bit more stable now we’re going to recap our crazy Monster October. We had a string of events for the whole month of October, with Halloween being the most anticipated day of the month we decided to make a month long event dedicated to the creepy, eerie, and scaretastic theme of Halloween. 

The first event was last October 12, Crude 2: Making Latex Monster For My Friends; it's our second installment of Crude which is initially a themed sketching event. Crude 2 was a latex sketching event, we drew on balloons with markers, with the theme monsters. Everybody drew balloon monsters for the heck of it. Our Crudest Award of the night went to Van Opura.

A few days after Crude 2 a massive 7.2 earthquake hit Bohol, devastating the small island, wrecking churches, homes and some lives. Our Boholanon brothers and sisters needed all the help they can get so Streetkonect together with Qube Gallery, Islands Group of Companies, and Gawad Kalinga partnered for a benefit art exhibit. We sold artworks from various artists and had live art on shirts that were for sale as well. The event generated approximately over P100,000 that helped our brothers and sisters in Bohol.

The second event on the Monster October list was on October 26, this time it was a fusion of two things, it was the Calavera exhibit opening and the Fright Night movie night. 

Calavera was a skulltastic pop up show that featured a skull template made by Uzi Emperado. Each artist was given the freedom to do what ever they want as long as they used the template given to them, as a result interesting skull interpretations were made. A number of Cebu City's top designers and artists joined the exhibit. 

Later in the night we had Fright Night, a film festival that featured horrifying stories from film students and independent film makers from Cebu. The Student Showcase included students from UP Cebu, University of San Carlos Cinematography, and International Academy of Film and Television (IAFT) ALUMNI. For the Filmmakers Showcase works by Bradley Tenchavez, Maria Victoria Beltran, Ivan Zaldarriaga, Christian Linaban, and Jopz Madarang, were showcased. Fright Night also doubled as a relief drive for the earthquake victims of Bohol. 

And finally we capped off Monster October with Halloween Party that was to die for! Eerie Ball was set on October 31st, bringing together bands, djs, artists, monsters, nurses, zombies, planeters, pandas, Ash Ketchum and a whole lot more into one epic and fun night. We had awesome bands like, Tiger Pussy, The Pervs, Foc Fashion, Dance With Me Kris and Snuber. We also had Dj sets from Pop Days, DJ Carlson Corbin, DJ Pedofuck, and DJ Ron. We had an epic night full of booze, mayhem and fun.

We'd like to thank our partners for this event, The Chillage, Tanduay, Bomba Press, The Junks and Black Bile. We'd also like to thank  Aframe Surf Company, Lilila Primitive Art, Mikiro, Soundfluxx, as well as all our musical acts for Eerie Ball. We'd also like to thank everyone who supported and went to the event, you guys are awesome and we hope to see you at our next event.

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. -pilipinas-streetplan 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. - saberone

Wrap-Up Week-End

Garapata in Bacolod . Many artists from all over the archipelago went to Bacolod last Nov. 13-16, 2014 to participate for the Viva Excon 2014.  The art event is more of a traditional art event rather  than a "primary flight-ish" or !ha? but it didn't  stop street artists to do what they do best. Paint Jam by Soika, Buen Abrigo and    Cori Franchesca Co in Bacolod  Garapata Stop Over in Cebu. He painted with cebuano local street artists, Soika (a Viva Excon Participant), WR, Bart and CrazyMaggot. Free Anting-Anting . Sprouting in Talamban, Cebu City. Really nice to see street art in Cebu making a comeback with new talents. I thought the difference between Cebu and Manila is that the former ceased to produce new talents while the latter had an endless supply. I was wrong! Yummy in Busay. Yummy is Bart's younger brother. He is quite unique in Cebu, and has a distinct inking style. Dr. Karayom for ESC Project Escol
