The first Robotars designer toy custom show is now open at the Art Asia Gallery, 4/F, SM Megamall until May 15, 2010!
In this exhibition, artists customize a blank resin-cast Robotar sculpture, transforming it into various personalities. Robotars was created by architect and artist Jomike Tejido, who aims to have this independently- produced art toy hop in exhibitions worldwide and promote Philippine art, food and tourism.
For Earth Day 2010, Over 30 artists ranging from professional toy customizers, illustrators of Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan (Ang InK), painters, graphic designers, and graffiti artists shall break the conventions of high-brow art and unleash Manila urban art.
A percent of the proceeds of the show shall benefit Haribon Foundation’s rainforestation fund. (http://www.haribon.org.ph/)
Thank you to Jomike for the opportunity to be part of this exhibit, even though I was out of town during opening night.
