Your Favorite Tita Essentials Now Come in Doggo-Inspired Boxes
Katinko has partnered with over 30 Filipino artists.
(SPOT.ph) When news broke on October 5 that Katinko partnered with Filipino artists to spruce up their packages, titas everywhere celebrated. The first batch of wooden boxes were designed by Francis Nacion, an artist who hails from Aklan and is known for his textural effects on his works. But more designs were released since—the latest of which are dog-themed paintings by Rishab Tibon. The works also showcase bright colors and surreal elements, which is his signature style.
Tibon, a self-taught artist who's also from Aklan, started out by designing T-shirts and jeepney signboards. He later relocated to Cebu and became an art director for an advertising company, then moved to Baguio to teach art in a private school. He eventually met National Artist for Visual Arts Benedicto Cabrera, and decided to become a full-time artist. He has since exhibited in galleries and art fairs locally and internationally like BenCab Museum, Ayala Museum, Affordable Art Fair Singapore, and Taichung Art Fair.
Over 30 artists are part of the Katinko Art Box project, according to their Instagram Story FAQ. Aside from Tibon, you can already purchase boxes designed by artists Emmanuel Sia, Ariosto Dale Bagtas, and Kublai Millan.
The 7.5" x 10.5" wooden Katinko Art Box includes a nasal decongestant, liniment roll-on and liniment oil, sports spray, ointment stick, hand sanitizer or alcohol, and the usual 10-gram ointment and 30-gram ointment. Each piece is made to order for P1,500. You can have your order picked up from Quezon City with your chosen courier or pay the shipping fee (P348 to P1,200) depending on the number of your orders and address.
