"ART is not what you see, but what you make others see" - Edgar Degas


I'm feeling under the weather since last week. So when I received an invitation to explore the Art Capital of the Philippines which is  Angono Rizal, I immediately said "Yes!"

Itinerary:
➤ Angono Petroglyphs ➤ Carlos Botong Francisco Art Gallery ➤ Balaw Balaw  ➤ Blanco Family Museum ➤ Pinto Art Museum

Duterte-Inspired Exhibit, Collection of Masterpieces by Artist Hayden Sison

I'm not an art collector nor an art fan but I like the story behind every paintings that always caught my attention. For me, painting and drawings are interpretation of what we feel, what we see, what we want to express . It has a deeper meaning that only the artist can explain.

Avante-garde artist Hayden Sison will unveil his latest collection of masterpieces inspired by the leading political figures in the country today at an exhibit entitled “Adventures in Digongland (More High Fructose Corn Syrup)" to be held at the SM Art Center in Megamall from January 3 to 14, 2017.
