PABLO celebrates 10 Year Anniversary with a series of shows This August

Pablo X2

Cubao X, Quezon City – It makes sense that Pablo X,  a month-long series of shows celebrating the gallery’s tenth anniversary, will be held at Post Gallery. It is after all in Cubao X, the hub of art, music, and vintage finds, where Pablo was born.

Established in 2005, Pablo has been exhibiting works spanning a broad range of disciplines as gleaned from the diverse selection of artists participating in the show. All have had a solo show or joined exhibits at Pablo, be it at the Cubao, Makati, or the Fort galleries. A notable line-up exhibiting and performing artists will be featured from August 1 to September 19, 2015.

Kicking the celebration off is a series of collaborative graffiti art by Okto, Ekis, Drone & Exld Manila on Saturday, August 1. The anniversary’s Illustration exhibit will be curated by Saturnino Basilia (Dina Gadia & Allan Balisi) and will feature works by Wiji Lacsamana, Abi Goy, Liza Flores, Manix Abrera, Nelz Yumul,   Lala Gallardo-Samson, Epjey Pacheco, Bjorn Calleja, Beejay Esber, Eva Yu, Meneer Marcelo, Dex Fernandez, Ramon Bautista, Jun Sabayton, Camy & Patrick Cabral, and Julius Sebastian. The Urban Art and Illustration exhibit is from August 1 to 8, 2015.

The second part of the Pablo Ten anniversary show will open on August 15 and run until August 22, 2015. It will focus on Video Art, and will showcase the works of Ivan & Pauline Despi, Tad Ermitaño, Kaloy Olavides, Martha Atienza, Poklong Anading,  and Lena Cobangbang. The opening night will be highlighted by a special Selecter FM Session, curated by Caliph8 with performances by Pow Martinez & Kaloy Olavides (with Pastilan Dong), Malek Lopez & John Sobrepena, Roger Lopez & Richard Tuason.

The third Pablo Ten anniversary event will run from August 29 to September 5, 2015 featuring installation works by Jeona Zoleta. A Photography show opens on the same night, curated by David Griggs and showcasing the works of Mitch Mauricio, Jay Yao, EWWS, Jed Escueta, Brendan Goco, Paolo Ruiz, RA Rivera, and MM YU.

Auggie Fontanilla’s Pag-Asa Project opens on March 6 at Post

Auggie Fontanilla
Pag-asa Project
Opening : 6 March 2015 Friday 6PM
Exhibit Duation : 7 March – 18 April 2015

Auggie Fontanilla’s 2nd solo exhibit Pag-asa Project is a culmination of his diaristic drawing ritual.  He keeps a journal of his drawings that are akin to old school tattoo flashes, and draws on them everyday as a means for him to transcend the drudgery of routine of work, of errands and domestic chores.  This also flames the light of hope for him, hence pag-asa,  that he may soon live out his frustration of becoming a tattoo artist.  His drawings, delineated in clear, neat outlines draw inspiration as well from gang emblems and prison insignias. These are to be translated as large pen and ink drawings, neon signages and embroidered patches on leather bomber jackets.

Auggie Fontanilla graduated from the University of Sto. Tomas (UST) with a degree in BS Fine Arts major in Advertising. His professional career brought him to the publishing industry, where he worked as an Art Director for Preview Magazine. He co-founded the artist collective Pilipinas Street Plan, and is an active member of the graffiti crew KST. He currently runs a creative studio and produces a clothing line called THE located in Cubao X.  His artwork has been featured in group shows held in the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Art Informal, Blanc Gallery, Secret Fresh, Suez & Zapote, and Vinyl on Vinyl. Note to Self in Pablo X is his first solo exhibition last 2012.

Auggie Fontanilla’s Pag-Asa Project exhibit opening will also coincide with the launch of Assembly Generals latest album at THE shop also located at Cubao X.
