As a part of our Humanities 2: Arts, Man and Society course, we were tasked to visit different museums around Manila. Actually, it was supposed to be around Ilocos, too, but due to the recent accident of the Victory Liner near our destination, our school was advised not to push through with that trip.
Nonetheless, I still had a lot of fun in this Manila trip, all because I love arts and museums in the first place.
Our first itinerary was the Pinto Art Gallery at Antipolo last April 25. The museum exhibits a lot of artworks from different artists specially those that are actually new in the industry. I am actually looking forward for my paintings to be exhibited here anytime soon this is the real reason why I am promoting the place (ehem, ehem) haha, kidding aside, the artworks are very defined and exceptional here at Pinto.
Also, the place is very peaceful and calming due to its garden location that is actually very suitable for pictorials and photoshoots. Every corner of the establishment was very picturesque. The location really serves as a great escape from the tons of stress our academic life could give us.
Of all the paintings, the section under Mr. Elmer Borlongan captured me the most. I love how deeply captivating the meanings of his paintings are. His paintings usually revolve around different social and self issues.
I extremely had a lot of fun and I would certainly love to go back here again.
