Last October 3, the first ever Katipunan Art Festival was held in Katipunan, Quezon City. Several shops, art stores and restaurants alike, held workshops and craft fairs the whole day. It was unfortunate that I was not free that day, but I’m proud and grateful to have been a part of it through the papercut exhibit organized by Hey Kessy, the All One Piece Exhibit.
The exhibit features artworks from 10 papercut artists, including, well, me. I’m really happy to be a part of this. For those who may not know, I learned papercutting from Mansy Abesamis of Hey Kessy, so it was great to somehow collaborate with her on this.
Here’s my submitted artwork. The title is “Pamana (Heritage)”, in honor of the Philippine eagle which was unjustly killed two months after it was released from captivity.
The piece is cut from a single sheet of paper, and is approximately 10×10 inches in size.
The exhibit will run until the end of October, so you still have time to check out the other artworks.
Join me and the folks from Spectrum Lifestyle Store in Alabang on the 28th of November for an afternoon of learning the art of papercutting.
The class will run from 1PM to 5PM and will include worksheets, a starter kit, frame for your artwork, and snacks. To register, click here. See you! 🙂
