Gallery shows non-commercial work of commercial makers

INSPIRATION STATION: A group of agency leaders in the Philippines have created Artists of Advertising, an online gallery dedicated to artwork by industry practitioners.

Jos Ortega, CEO of Havas Ortega in Manila, and Laszlo Lim and Kankan Ramos, the managing partners of Invictus PH, have founded Artists of Advertising, an online art gallery showcasing works by artists who either are or were advertising practitioners.

The opening collection features 14 artists and 50 paintings, illustrations, collages, sculptures, digital art, mixed media and photographs. “More artists of advertising will be introduced in the coming months," Ortega said. "We are also in discussions with artists of advertising from the other countries.”

Seven of the artists featured have done exhibitions in international galleries and had their work covered in international art magazines. Jane Ebarle, Kankan Ramos, Cobie Cruz, Gissele Bautista, Adeste Deguilmo and Vin Quilop have displayed their art works in gallery shows in New York, Miami, San Francisco, Paris, Toronto, Vancouver, Singapore, Manila, Cebu and Bacolod.    

You've arrived at Inspiration Station, a weekly look at imaginative and artistic work from creators of all kinds across Asia-Pacific. Or sometimes, we might ask a creative about what they're inspired by outside of work. Step off for a minute to recharge your creative batteries and find inspiration for that next big idea of yours further down the track.
