Sansò: Rare and Essential

At its 1st year anniversary, Qube Gallery is bringing the personal collection of Juvenal Sanso to exhibit in Cebu for the first time.

Born in Spain in 1929, Sanso was only four years old when he moved to Manila with his family. His father was a sculptor who established a decorative wrought iron business. He had hoped that Juvenal’s training under first art teacher Alejandro Celis would incline the latter towards the family business. However, the boy fell too deep in love with painting. Sanso was influenced by masters such as Fernando Amorsolo, Ireneo Miranda, and Dominador Castaneda when he enrolled in University of the Philippines’ College of Fine Arts. He then established a home in Paris in pursuit to master his craft, travelling ever so often to art capitals in Italy, United States, and United Kingdom.

After five decades in Europe, he finally comes back to his homeland bringing with him “Rare and Essential” --a body of work done in Paris and themed after summer beach scenes, lush greeneries, and golden dawnscapes. The collection will be displayed in Qube Gallery at the Henry Hotel in Banilad from January 14 until February 8, 2014.

Although not a Filipino in citizenship, Sanso stays a cultural icon. With an astounding profile enumerating solo exhibitions and major awards across the globe, Sanso’s spot in Philippine Art and History is beyond definite.

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
