BGC’s Three Newest Murals Are Pretty and Evocative

They're easy on the eyes.

(SPOT.ph) Bonifacio Global City is known for its large collection of vibrant murals and graffiti covering its huge firewalls, gutters, and parking lots. This November, the art-conscious spot adds more to its roster by launching 10 new murals by local and foreign artists. These works speak of passion, which is BGC Arts Center Festival's theme for this year—Champions of Passion: Soulful Feats of Art, scheduled from November 24 to 26. The three-day event may be weeks away but already, three murals have been unveiled that are sure to catch your eye when you pass by that side of the Metro.

 


 


 

"The Way Home" by Solana Perez

Location: One Parkade Building

 

Solana Perez' three-part mural features a colorful rendition of horses in equally vibrant backgrounds. There's a bright green horse set against rolling hills, a blue horse on wheels, a fiery orange horse looking from behind, and another blue one seemingly flying in a magical land. "I chose to feature horses as a reference to the history of transportation (since the building is a car park), and also circles and spirals to represent cycles and meeting places where people keep returning to," says the artist about the inspiration for her work.

 


 


 

"Kapit Kamay" by Biskeg Pangasinan Artist Collective

Location: Near corner of 30th Street and 7th Avenue

 

Biskeg Pangasinan has a mission to uplift Pangasinense's artistry, and part of this is to support young artists in fulfilling their dreams. This rings true in the mural they created which features motifs of the sea—representing Pangasinan as a coastal province, and the symbol of kapit-bisig—representing the Filipino value of holding on to each other to achieve a common goal.

 


 


 

"Dating Tagpuan" by John Paul Antido

Location: Near corner of 30th Street and 7th Avenue

 

Before high-rise buildings started taking over Bonifacio Global City, fields of tall grass occupied the area. "Dating Tagpuan" reimagines what could have possibly been a common hangout under a lamppost surrounded by plants and animals in this location. Artist John Paul Antido created art using the building's walls to create a 3D impression of the characters meeting each other.

 

BGC Arts Center Festival is from November 24 to 26 in various venues of the BGC Arts Center, 26th Street corner 9th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City. For more information, visit BGC Arts Center on Facebook.
