Painting seniors from the College of Fine Arts and Design showcased their talent and skill in a thesis art exhibition held last April 23 at the GSIS Museo ng Sining.

Themed “This Is ArtStory,” the exhibit featured works depicting self-love, cultural trends and personal experiences.

“We in the painting department really would love to expose our students and that is why we have this exhibit. The works show what they have learned, shared, and experienced throughout their four-year stay in the University,” Asst. Prof. Mailah Baldemor-Balde, head of the painting department, said in her welcome remarks.

Therese Cunanan painted plus size women vis-a-vis sexy reflections in “Self-acceptance and Confidence,” stressing that “body size does not define who we are as a person.”

Justine Ngo, in his monochromatic serigraph “Ignored,” captured the daily lives of the poor.

Charles-Bryan Siy went beyond traditional painting with a tile mosaic of the Filipino-Chinese friendship arch in Manila’s Binondo district.

“This Is ArtStory” ran until April 27 at the GSIS.
