Mariana Zobel, John Lloyd Cruz, Elmer Borlongan + more at Art Fair Philippines 2015

Collectors and creators collide

 

(SPOT.ph) There’s the art and then there’s the artists (and then there’s the people who save the artists from starving). Art Fair Philippines 2015 saw its largest number of participating galleries to date. Of course, with 33 galleries comes...er, a heck of a lot of artists and even a greater number of art. Not surprisingly, the opening night was filled with people who left us star struck. National Artists have that effect on us.
