My fifth contribution – Aura Elite Magazineb Issue 5 (Julie Ann Cover) “Filipina Visual Artist Aze Ong and Her Crochet Installation Art.”
Originally from Antipolo and now based in Quezon City, Aze Ong was a volunteer teacher assigned to the mountains of Bukidnon. Here she was inspired by the culture of the Talaandig tribe. She firmly believes that art and life must flow together. Her artworks are a realization of experiences of enlightenment nature. She treats them like her own having personalities, characteristics and feelings.
Aze Ong’s work has been showcased even by the National Commission on Culture and the Arts, as well as various galleries and exhibit spaces. Most recently, at the MWS Mussafah Abu Dhabi Art Hub entitled “I Love You Mosque,” with her performance to a traditional Arabic music.
Her art is spontaneously created without patterns, standards, formulas, sketches or studies—the kind you’d never see in real life as they’ve been tucked away and brought together to provide a dreamworld experience. She hopes to share her light and creativity with everyone.
