They maybe old fashioned but this kind of craft are close to the heart of people, especially the children and promote values.  As such, there is a market for these and if given the fund grant, it will take a long way in terms of income and return on investment.

Yes, machine made Christmas decors from China are cheaper but handcrafted are still prefer by many as they are natural and heartwarming.  If given the chance, I intend to establish a store for such soon.  If I will be supported by a grantee or investor, online shop is also possible.

I do not claim ownership to the actual designs and photos.  Images are excerpted.

World Class Furniture, et al, Pinoy Style

As to world class furniture design, a Filipino is making waves all over the world these days.   As the world is turning to organic, so as to this young man’s works of art.   His works are a masterpiece.  Let me relay them to you through photos.    Picture paints a thousand words and it can be seen in the works of …

I am pleased and proud to feature some of his classic design collection: 

 

Above framed photos are only some of his chair collections.  More will be featured in the coming days (e.g. dining, sleeping, storage, compliments, etc.).  
 
Photos are mostly excerpt from his site and google images. More to follow soon!
 
Let God be glorified through his works and life testimony!

The man behind.

He got his degree in Industrial Design at Pratt Institute, New York.   

Apprenticed for a leather and wood workshop near Florence, Italy, while completing his studies.

Got his Furniture Marketing and Production exposure at Export Akademie Baden-Württemberg in Reutlingen, Germany (under a private and state scholarship program).  Subsequently worked in Bielefeld and Munich.

Return to Cebu on 1996 to manage his mother’s furniture business (founded 1972).  His mother Betty  Cobonpue is a designer known for creating new techniques in using rattan.  Later he slowly adopt his own style and can be seen from his collections. 

Kenneth is more than his family’s pride.  To Pinoy Espesyal, this man is trully special as he is a national treasure.  Although his works is already known to the architecture and Interior design community, who would have thought that Kenneth’s artistry and global standard are featured and taught at Bread of Life Christian Ministry … having a place in its program for love for nation called the ”Brown Raise.”  This man uplift in his own way the image of Phippines in the global village.

Highlights of Philippine Visual Arts (Paintings)

Spolliarium by Juan Luna

(The painting is actully a giant one size 4×7 meters, exhibited at Metropolitan Museum Philippines, the frame is different)

In the late 1800’s when most Asian were still trying to figure out the meaning of modern art, Filipinos are already making waves in Europe.   And decades before Hollywood captured the Roman gladiators on film, Juan Luna from Philippines already captured its moving reality on canvas.  Juan Luna won the gold on a competition in Madrid, Spain.  He was only 24 then, an ex-naval officer and pensionado of the Philippine Colonial Government.  As recorded, everyone who view could not believed what they saw.    As told, Michael Angelo took 60 years to perfect such style.  Juan Luna only made it in 6 years.

In native Filipino language “Nilampaso lang naman ni Juan Luna ang pinaka magagaling na pintor sa buong mundo ng panahong iyon.” 🙂

Partly Exerpt info:

Juan Luna had briefly attended classes at the Academia de San Fernando and was the protege of Alejo Vera, one of the young Filipino so impressed Vera that he took Luna along with him when he went to Rome to undertake some commissions. In Rome, Luna imbibed the classical spirit of Michelangelo and Raphael and worked hard—for eight months—on an immense canvas which measure roughly 4 x 7 meters. The painting, which now hangs in the hall of Flags, Department of Foreign Affairs, a gift from the Spanish government in 1958, is the Spoliarium. This was to be his entity at the Madrid Exposition of 1884. It was an immediate sensation. It won not only the highest possible honor, the first of three Gold Medals, but also enthusiastic notice in the newspaper columns of Madrid, Barcelona, and Paris. Many of the notices were extravagant raves. Here is a sampling taken at random: “The largest work, the most frightful, the most discussed work of the Exposition.” “It is more than a painting, it is a book, a poem.” “It is something more than the mere mechanism of genius, of the art composition. . . Luna is a thinker.” “The superior qualities of Luna are: as an artist, his ambition to produce great designs; to subdue the multitude with the resources of the highest class in art; serious and rough, not with vile adulations from the pencil nor of color in beautiful lines; as a painter, his energetic style, broad and noble, truthful and on occasion fantastic.” “A giant of art, a kind of Hercules, that enters furiously leveling down all the gods with blows from his club, bringing in a new art, full of ideas and forms, carrying a Spartan soul and the brush of Michelangelo...

Since then, Filipinos have shown various styles and excell all over the world.  Below are the highlights of Art Paintings by various Filipino Artists of the 20th Century.  Bravo!

 

Above painting images are just tip of the iceberg.  Better visit the Philippines and its museums for view more world class paintings made by Filipino Visual Artist.

Note:  I don’t sell Philippine Paintings.   I just showcase the rich visual arts culture in the Philippines in recognition of the greatness of Philippines’ finest painters and visual artist.  In the Philippines, below is one of the oldest artform (archaeological findings) renowned to world art critics (dated Before Christ)…
