Online real estate brokerage’s Junior Art Center a big hit among art fair–goers and kids

Art in the Park, dubbed as the country’s most important affordable art fair, was recently held at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village, Makati, where online real estate brokerage Hoppler successfully organized its Junior Art Center activity—a huge hit among fair-goers and their kids.

At Hoppler’s Junior Art Center, kids stayed for free art sessions. Parents who signed up with the online real estate brokerage received art kits composed of canvas and paint materials, modeling clay, and origami paper. Hoppler also put up a Community Wall where fair-goers were able to doodle or draw things about home that inspire them—a project that is in line with Hoppler’s mission of promoting an engaged and cohesive community.

CEO Ramon Ballesca Jr. said: “Hoppler is committed to community building by making sure that Filipinos find that perfect home in the right community and by connecting them only with duly licensed and reliable real estate brokers and agents. A home is very much like an artwork. It starts like a blank canvas where every family imagines itself living in, gradually taking form, until it becomes a tangible place where children are raised and nurtured.”

Like its previous editions, this year’s event was set to celebrate all kinds of art with the goal of making contemporary pieces more accessible Filipinos and aspiring collectors. According to the event’s organizers, Art in the Park 2018 makes art even more affordable by prescribing a cap of Php50,000 on art pieces. The event is also for the benefit of the Museum Foundation of the Philippines.

The 2018 fair featured up-and-coming local artists, 59 galleries, and student groups who exhibited their own unique art pieces in the event, among whom are this year’s two featured artists: Tekla Tamoria and Jacob Lindo.

Tamoria, who has participated in numerous group shows and has been working on developing a unique relationship with paper and fabrics, transformed her feverish energy into obsessive focus on her installation titled “Colony”— intricately made hives attached to a tree.

On the other hand, painter and sculptor Lindo’s work similarly represented the best in Art in the Park: finding new in the familiar. Lindo is fast becoming known for his collages, some of which feature meticulously cut illustrations from old used books presented in new and exciting ways.
