STORIES FROM MY WINDOW
I would like to invite YOU (yes, you) on May 11, Sunday at 6:00 p.m. at KAIDA GALLERY for an exhibit opening, mine.
For directions, click here.
It's my second exhibit for this year and I've done 15 works in pen and ink on paper. If you visit this blog, I guess you'll be familiar by now that I do these drawings and write short; short stories about what I draw or paint that is no more than two pages. (A pretty economical length for a blog really.)
This exhibit would also be the last images I will be producing here in Pasay City. On June 30th, I am moving to another location. It's not really that distant, but it does feel like an ocean away from the street I have begun to call home in the past five years. What will come out of my imagination once I've moved, only Batman knows.... really.
I call this exhibit "STORIES FROM MY WINDOW" because literally, all images I have done for this show were of people I see from my third floor window. (I figured that's why Manang Alice - the balut vendor and her ilk, call me "Ang Lalaki sa Bintana" or the Man at the Window.)
Some of the individuals I have drawn are people I have known here on Libertad. Some I have only seen once walking along the street, no different from the rest of humanity I see passing by everyday. But one thing is definite, each person has left an indelible mark in my memory.
I do hope you can come - in body or in spirit.
The exhibit runs from May 11 to May 23rd of this year.
