Art in the Park 2016: Highlights in Illustrations
The popular understanding of art is that it is not easy. But on Sunday, it was a walk in the park.
(SPOT.ph) At Jaime Velasquez Park in Makati, Philippine Art Events, Inc. again gathered various groups from the Philippine art scene to stage the annual Art in the Park.
Dubbed as the country’s “most significant affordable art fair,” Art in the Park aims to create awareness for the National Museum of the Philippines. It offers a range of visual art pieces with prices of P50,000 and below.
Here are scenes from the event in doodles and shades of red and grey.

Street art: Most paintings were literally on the street. Like in bazaars, enthusiasts can appreciate paintings freely and outside the rigors and stiffness of galleries.
Installations: Greeting visitors at the entrance was a wax installation by Daniel dela Cruz. As part of the exhibit, the wax figures melted as the day went by.
The traditional selfie: Artists making on the spot caricatures was one of the main attractions of the event.
