Contempo Art Gallery

A new gallery space recently opened in Cebu, tucked away in the industrial area of the metro this small space is offering a nurturing and supportive experience for the artists that would like to exhibit.

According to Bisai, founder of Contempo Art Gallery "For myself naman what I can say is that, Contempo Art Gallery is an artist-run space our goal is not only to establish ourselves as a new home for contemporary modern art but to also assist Cebu based artists and those from visayas and Mindanao. And also act as a venue to exhibit and expose their art pieces for the rest of the country and the world to see and to know they exist. We are here to support emerging talents to get noticed in the art scene"

Last March 15, 2016 was the gallery's first local solo exhibition and Jeffrey Sisican's sixth. Jeffrey is a Bohol based artist who graduated from the University of the Philippines Cebu. His exhibition entitled Humanoids explores the physical and internal mutation of the human form. A mixture of printing techniques, graphite, and acrylic depict crumpled and deformed looking humanesque creatures. You can catch Jeffrey Sisican's Humanoid's until March 31st.

Contempo Gallery is located at Hernan Cortes St., Mandaue City inside the Bamboo Bay Community Condominiums, you can find it at the lobby level Tower 1. You can expect more shows from this small gallery with a big heart.

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
