Pinto Art Museum is a pleasant remembrance on the history of Philippine Art, an admiration of the authentic artistry of the present and a very exciting future of Filipino ingenuity.
Filipino art is distinctly unique and very creative. It presents a deep experiential sojourn that can be (loosely) likened to the present famous hashtag, #hugot. May sadyang matinding pinaghuhugutan ang ating pagpapakahulugan sa ating sining na maaari nating masabi na ito ay tunay na sariling atin.
Pinto Art Museum testifies that Filipino art is also multidimensional. It is a combination of the best of everything like embroidery and digitally lasered canvass; paint and tatting; paint with an optical illusion twist through the inverting technique, etc.
We are blessed to have one of the artists of the painting, Karnabal, in Andy Orencio to be our unexpected tour guide. We were just taking pictures around, admiring the incredible Filipino brilliance and sharing our thoughts on it when he, after fixing a slightly out of place craft, began explaining the deeper meaning behind the artistry at the museum and its connection with each other. It made the experience more meaningful.
Our trip to the museum is a breath of fresh air. It is a sweet and calming alternative from the usual recreation of going to the malls, watching movies or hanging out at restaurants. It is Filipino art appreciation in a rustic haven.
Pinto Art Museum is a national treasure. May there be more places of respite like this which can truly enliven our being and make us cherish more the genius in us.
I have more photos but hey, visit the museum instead. 🙂
