The Beanie and Bren Show — Join best buddies, #BeanieandBren, for weekly #creative #adventures of #art, #crafts, #friendship and #fun. www.beanieandbren.comBren’s Bataclan is a Filipino-American artist who began his street art installation in the summer of 2003. The painting involves the artist leaving his cartoon inspired FREE paintings for takers who ‘promise to smile.’ He calls this SmileyB Project. Bren started around the Boston area but has since gone worldwide with his project and has begun to paint murals and exhibit his paintings across the country.

To get to know the artist, please read the linked article which I previously wrote extensively about Bren’s Art and his Smile Movement back in June 2015: Bren Bataclan, artist who gives free artwork for a promise to smile.

Now, his up to something new: He has started a new project—“The Beanie and Bren Show.”  Although, The SmileB Project is all about giving free artworks for a promise to smile— this show carries the same objective. It is all about fun, friendship, creativity, and above all…smiles!

Lorenzo E. Gabutina: The Late Blooming Filipino Visual Artist

I recently made contact with Lorenzo E. Gabutina (pseudonym: Legabutina), a digital artist, based in Caloocan, Philippines for a feature article in my blog.   His out-of-the-box artistic style of abstract images that is beautifully surreal and magically pleasing to the eyes.  I was immediately drawn to his work.

Lorenzo E. Gabutina has more than 30 years of professional experience in advertising and marketing management. He learned and sharpened his marketing skills in a multinational company environment with a 15-year stint in Kodak Philippines, as the company’s marketing communications manager. Lorenz’s first and most passionate love is advertising where he had been a copywriter and account executive for many years before assuming senior management positions. He has been involved in all key aspects of the advertising business, from creative to media, production, research and marketing planning.

According to Legabutina, he sees teaching as the culmination of his advertising career where he could share with advertising students the many insights and learning’s he had gained from his long years of working in the ad industry. He is currently, an advertising lecturer at St. Scholastica’s College.

Legabutina is a regular artist-seller of the monthly Future Market @ Escolta an event organized by 98b in its effort to help revitalized old Manila. He was also invited at the Katipunan Weekend Market last weekend of October. They feature a tightly curated selection of jewelry, handmade items, clothes, arts & crafts, vintage finds, delicious food & live music. If you are in the Escolta area on November 14, go checkout the Future Market. There are no specific dates scheduled for the November and December Katipunan Weekend Market but from time to time, please do check their Facebook page for exact dates.

His first artist solo art show, “The Accidental Artist” was held earlier this year at the Sigwada Art Gallery in San Andres Bukid.

Take a moment to read his artist insight, and take a peek into the mind of this late bloomer.

On his art journey:

My art journey began 5 years ago when I retired from advertising work at age of 60. I didn’t know then that I could make a good art. With so much time on my hands, I started doodling on the computer and posted my works on Facebook. My friends liked it! And that is what started this art journey…..I’m a late bloomer.

Early this year my eyes got so bad that I had an operation. “Wala akong makita sa computer,” I could not see the computer screen. So I started making hand drawn sketches. “Aba, pwede pala akong mag drawing with my hands!” (He said: Wow,  I could draw with my hands). When I started posting them on Facebook, my friends liked it. It was a big revelation for me, to learn that I could really draw with my hands. I have always been used to doing things through the computer. I had my eye operation last April this year and my eyes now are as good as brand new. But I continue to sketch with my hands till today, aside from my digital work.

On his art:

There is nothing profound or philosophical about my art. At least, that’s what I think so. Others will disagree, of course. The thing is, the narrative in my art comes after the work is finished, not before – which art critics will scoff at. There has to be a clear intent or purpose behind what you do, they will say.

My focus is on design, not the story. I want my art to be visually provocative, nothing more. If it touches your five senses and if it resonates with you; then, I am happy. I don’t want my art to be ‘understood’ nor ‘rationalized.’ It’s the least of my intentions. The purpose of my art is to entertain. “Mababaw ba?” (Am I shallow?)

On his art style and influences:

Artists that have had the most impact in me are Dali, Picasso, Boticelli, Miro, Klee, O-keefe, and may others whose names I can’t remember now. I don’t know if their style has influenced my art, maybe subconsciously, yes. I am drawn towards art that have geometric, pop, grotesque, surreal elements.

My art is a mélange of styles. I sometimes wonder if I have a unique style but it’s not a big thing for me. I don’t want to be boxed into a certain style anyway. I want it spontaneous, impromptu and sincere which reflects who I am as a person. What you see is what you get, “kun baga.” (rather)

On being a self-taught artist:

Being a self-taught artist, I pretty much do what I want to do. Not bound by any norm or convention other than good basic aesthetic sense. I don’t put on my thinking that when I work. It’s purely instinctive. I just let things flow. I trust my creative instincts.

On validation:

Every artist needs validation. The feeling that he is doing something right; I get a high when I fellow artist like my work. “Gawa na araw ko pag may isang mabigat na artist na nag like sa work ko,” my day is fulfilled when a big time artist admires his artworks.

The future of his art:

Where do I go from here? I will keep on marking art as long as my five senses are intact. I am happy that art came last in my checkered life. To me, it’s a gift, a blessing from God. I am not a super religious person but much of who I am today and the kind of art I make, I attribute to God. “Nag- iba ang pananaw ko sa buhay,” my life’s vision changed when I rediscovered God.

Guia Ty: Watercolorist

Name of Artist:

Guia Ty

Art Form:

Traditional Art – Watercolor

Artist Biography: 

I’m Guia Ty, 28 years old, a self-taught watercolor painter who hails from Cavite.

Guia Ty, Filipina-Chinese Watercolorist

I started drawing when I was two – the usual incomprehensible scribbles on the floor and walls of our home. I never took drawing seriously until I was 8 years old when I joined my first contest at school. Since then I only relied on art subject, art club activities, and the school library (internet was for the rich way back 1990’s), to learn about drawing and painting. I continued to learn on my own, practicing every day and discovering how to paint with watercolor. I had to save from my allowance so I could buy what art materials I wanted. It was until second year high school when I first won in an international contest in Hong Kong. I won for three consecutive years.

College life was completely artless, and it continued until I started working. I hardly painted for seven years straight. I would draw occasionally, because it was needed in my profession as a teacher; having creativity and skills in drawing was an advantage. But teaching wasn’t really my passion. I did discover a new found love: writing. I keep journals filled with random thoughts, poetry, until I was able to write short stories. When creativity strikes and I do not have the time nor space to draw, I end up writing until way past midnight.

I stopped working to focus on my master’s degree, but I ended up painting. The last quarter of 2013 was life changing. I was encouraged by a stranger (who happens to be an artist, and eventually became my mentor) that I should try painting a piece every day, and see how my vision was developing. He said I already had the skill; it was time I found myself in what I was doing. At that time I was terribly lost and confused to where my career was going. I did what I could, to think of something new, unique, creative, and try to execute it on paper. I had no knowledge at all of paint and paper brands, I stuck to ordinary student-quality materials that were affordable.

Early 2014 I made a series of four abstractions of women. I entitled them ‘Tetralogy of Fallot’, with each piece expressing unspeakable emotions: Vanity, Melancholy, Obsession, and Emotional Tirades. It represented all the feelings and confusions I had, everything I could not voice out, all demons that I have been fighting within me. I used the idea as motivation and subject of my craft. I finally found what others say ‘signature’ in my craft.

And as any little girl with big dreams, my series were sent to a gallery in Florence and I participated in a group exhibit in Portovenere, Italy last September 2014. And I owe everything to my mentor who helped me, guided me, and supported me.

Doing abstractions wasn’t enough. I continued discovering what I could do, and every day I try to learn something new about painting and what my hands could create. I learned, on my own, the value of artist quality paints and papers, how to store and preserve my works, and even how to frame them carefully. I also discovered a new path for my artistic expression: women and flowers. Still with the same motivation, I started to try and represent emotions through beautiful faces. I try my best to give life to them through their eyes, as if I want to draw the viewer to look closely at my work and make them feel what I am feeling. This new discovery has led my art to be patronized by women like me, who have passion for the arts, beauty, and elegance. My works have been collected by both Filipino and foreign individuals, reaching countries such as Austria, Germany, Malaysia, and Australia.

I still remain as a simple, dreamy girl who aspires so much in life. I still wish to have an exhibit in the Philippines, and maybe teach art someday. Teaching is my profession, art is my passion – to do both would be the best job I could ever have. I use my Instagram account to share my works and encourage young painters to stay away from the mainstream, and try to look in themselves to discover what their creative souls are made of. I hope what I do inspire others to strive on their own and be the best they could be.

Ronna Lara-Bes, The Multi-Faceted Artist

The artist would describe herself as multi-faceted, for she has developed skills of seemingly different disciplines. However, one mutual denominator among them is that they all resolve around artistic pursuits. Her art endeavors have dominated her life for as long as she can remember.

Ronna Lara-Bes is an alumnus of Architecture in University of Santo Tomas, a course that helped combined the technical and the creative side of her artistry. Her professional life is dedicated to creativity and the teaching of it. She is a part-time instructor at Feati University School of Fine Arts. Her early years, she saw herself as a fashion designer, then as an architectural visualizer, product designer, 3D Animator, photographer and visual effects artist—An all-around artist!

In the field of traditional art, her choice mediums are oil, acrylics and watercolour. She switches from one to another to keep her perspective constantly fresh, yet continually retaining her unique artistic identity. This is yet another manifestation of her multifaceted nature. Her work is often been described as possessing cleanliness and shades have and having that three-dimensional effect which oftentimes amuses her given her computer graphics background.

Meet Millet Galeos Sacerdoti – An Eclectic Visual Artist

A Virgo from the year of the Earth Rooster, Ramilita “Millet” Fajardo Galeos, who hails from Pasay City, grew up in the busy streets of Paco, Manila. Millet came from a family of doctors, nurses, artists, musicians, accountants and engineers. She was inspired by the tenacity of her late uncle, Zosimo Fajardo Sr. a prolific deaf-mute painter who trained under Fernando Amorsolo. Her first cousin, “Queen of Radio Advertising” Ompong Remigio, elevated to the Hall of Fame of the Philippines Creative Guild, is another inspiration.

Interesting artist! I feel that she is someone you should know.  She is one prolific artist who is active in Manila’s art scene. Shout out to my high school buddy Wam Molina who introduced me to her.  Thank you Wam! (Watch out for a future blog post on Wam’s photography)

Hope you enjoy this post and her art the same way as I did!

Millet Galeos Sacerdoti and her art.

Tell me about yourself as a Freelance Visual Artist and your type of art.

As a self-taught visual artist for more than 25 years; I must say, I haven’t encountered any design task that was too hard to execute, at the same time be able to freely express my style (a feat for most graphic designers and increasingly hard to put into practice due to different client needs and demands).

Not claiming that I’m special or freakishly good at what I do, but I believe that my creativity stems from the way I see things, I was born with epilepsy and bipolar disorder and was left undiagnosed until I was 30. My art possibly falls under so many categories except traditional.

Taken from my art profile – Her love for basic shapes and bright colors, keen eye for detail and future trends, good sense of balance and form and her preciseness of pen and pencil drove her beyond typical expressions, and forms. Her design-sense is contemporary, mostly abstract depictions of life; intricate, comic, pop and psychedelic. Her subjects normally involve love of family and children, biological and natural patterns, hidden messages and puzzles, sex, epilepsy and extreme moods. Her works are done meticulously and intricately, but all in a whim, with no defined plans or studies. Her play of shapes, textures and colors usually deceive the viewer’s eyes. She lets the viewer define and interpret her work the way they want to see it. Millet’s favorite medium is ink. She also uses acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil, graphite, charcoal, oil pastel, markers, crayons and mixed media. She is adept in both conventional and digital media.

Apoplexie Mental Vulgarity by Artist Millet Galeos Sacerdoti

And as an Owner at Apoplexie Art Bar

Apoplexie is French for seizure. Art Bar doesn’t relate exactly to an edifice like a bar or restaurant but more to a shop (in this case, and as of the moment, a virtual shop). I did put up a physical shop in Kapitolyo, Pasig for a multiply.com account; sadly, it didn’t pull through since they closed down. It’s the future of Apoplexie that I am currently planning on. We target to bring Apoplexie back focusing on the arts and music scene, after we build the studio in Tagaytay…the place to build already exists, and my remaining Apoplexie stocks are kept in the bodega. These stocks include mostly of my artworks, preloved clothing and handcrafted fashion accessories, other artists’ paintings, and art collectibles. We’re on planning stage and will start setting up a temporary showroom first and bit by bit build from there. Hoping to open by end 2015 if permitting won’t be cumbersome.

You mentioned you’re SOELAG. What is this?

Soelag is the reverse of my surname Galeos. I use this as my pseudonym for certain art activities that involve live and interactive art, moving art or videography. It’s not my alter ego, it just so happens that when I signed my name before, it reads both as Galeos and Soelag, almost like an ambigram.

Besides you, who are the other featured Apoplexie Art Bar artist?

One of Apoplexie Art Bar’s concepts will be, aside from artists being able to show their works, to accommodate and feature select artists as its resident/stay-in artist for two weeks each month, without repeating the same artist, giving more exposure to new and upcoming artists. That’s all I can say for now since everything is in conceptual stage.

What type of art do you feature at Apoplexie Art Bar?

Any and all types of art (there’s art in trash, but there is also “trash art”- which I am not keen on promoting)

You mentioned your price is cheap?  What are your price ranges? 

That price would apply on the fashion part of Apoplexie.

Artworks wise, I believe I’m relatively cheap (not being humble about it nor too happy to say it). Currently, my cheapest artwork would be P500.00 and the most expensive is P120K (which can also mean I don’t plan to sell it, at the moment, or they jacked up my price – hehe). I would like to work on a price per sq. in. list, but when you’re enjoying what you do, it’s really hard to put a price on it. As of now, I keep it low so that more people will have access to my art.

Give me an update on your Art Events?

I’ve been very active lately as Director and founding member of the United Women Artists Association of the Philippines (UWAAP) which is geared towards promoting the female artists, to pursue impeccable craftsmanship, and serve as inspiration to other women artists, both locally and internationally. (Motto eh, I have to write that down, YKWIM) Our organization was founded just this year and only yet has been actively participating ever since its launch and first group exhibit last October in Dos Pueblos Gallery entitled “DiskARTe“.

UWAAP Teaser: DOS PUEBLOS GALLERY Presents…”DISKARTE” The first group exhibition of the UNITED WOMEN ARTISTS ASSOCIATION OF THE PHILIPPINES. Robinsons Magnolia, New Manila, Quezon City

Ongoing exhibits: UWAAP co-organized and I partly sponsored (via Apoplexie Art Bar, GS Tagaytay and SNAFU!) the NBI’s 78th Anniversary Art and Photo Exhibit Opening last 3 November. Exhibit runs until 5 December.

Also, we are participating at the 1st SBMA Women’s Summit entitled “Ang Bagong Pinay” in Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center. We will also hold interactive or live art, on the spot sketching and art demonstration activities this 26-27 November.

Future of your art?

I am at present involving myself more into arts and music-infused fund-raising projects and benefit shows, either as co-organizer or sponsor/patron.  Next year’s activities are already lined-up. Though, I may have to take a backseat midway 2015 to pursue building my own artist haven in Tagaytay.
