Happy Monday

ParacosmThe future’s so bright, we’re going to wear white.

This snap with our dear friend Amanda (soon to be Mrs. Santos), was taken last Saturday during Paracosm: an art exhibit by talented brothers Roman and Angelo Padilla. Their art work is dark, whimsical, and intricate. I highly recommend checking it out till April 20 at The Collective.

Carl and I are falling more and more in love with Filipino art this year. If you have any artists you think we should know about, let me know! I always enjoy featuring local artists on the site as well.

Don’t forget to join my ANMA Lifestyle giveaway. It’s going to be ending next week.

    Funny, the hubby and I have been spending a lot of time in art galleries these past couple of weeks. We’re building a house and in turn would also like to build our art collection. Have to start early, right?

    In any case, right now, I am crazy about the paintings of Aner Sebastian. You can see samples of his work by following this link: http://renaissanceart.sproads.com/post/ecolorgy-2012.

    I also like Jonathan Ranola’s whimsical art: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Art-of-Jonathan-Ranola/158682677641502


  4. Hi Cat, you might be interested to see my friends Mark and Johanna from Happy Garaje. You can check out their site at http://www.happygaraje.com . They’re a husband and wife team and they’re amazing!

    Among their many beautiful works, they hand-crafted this life-sized version of the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones made entirely out of toys: http://happygaraje.com/portfolio/children-kings/
