Founded in 2015, Art Vancouver is Western Canada’s largest fine arts fair that features local and international artists and galleries. With the theme "Uniting Nations Through Art," it is set to present a diverse collection from exhibitors around the world. 

Quilop is among the 100 international artists who were invited by Art Vancouver to showcase his collection of paintings titled In Between Manila. He takes inspiration from the architectural wonders in the Metro, including the Manila City Hall, Rizal Park, and the Cultural Center of the Philippines. 

"I want to showcase Manila as our capital. It has a rich heritage. I like the juxtaposition of different eras of buildings. I want to show the beauty and grit of the city at the same time," says Quilop in an interview with SPOT.ph.

Quilop also presents slices of life by capturing moments that are fleeting and almost unnoticed, and transforms them into watercolor paintings. 

"I want to immerse myself in the moments that matter: the street vendor, the old-age architectural beauty, and different silhouettes of life, all moving and living intrinsically together for different reasons and motivations," he adds.

Art Vancouver runs from April 25 to 28 at the Vancouver Convention Center in Canada. For more information, visit Art Vancouver’s website.
