THOMASIAN visual artists came together in “Art for Everyone 2018,” an art exhibit committed to supporting local artists and widening their audience at the SM Megamall Fashion Hall in Mandaluyong City last Aug 30.

The exhibit was participated in by 11 groups and 53 solo artists.

Ronnie Lim, a biology and medicine alumnus, injected realism and abstract in “The Red Ballerina,” an oil painting of a dancing ballerina.

“Realism is very tedious and time-consuming especially when dealing with oil. Abstract initially relaxes me as I am free from borders […] but the more I dwell on abstract the more I want to control the medium,” Lim told the Varsitarian.

Bianca Co, a Fine Arts graduate, mounted “Blank Stares and Self-bondage,” a mixed-media painting consisted of SM plastic bags in which she combined the concept of recycling and mental health care.

Co’s “Flat” depicted polar bears and floral landscapes intended as a statement against the endangerment of animals and their natural habitats.

C’ae Duron, another Fine Arts graduate, showcased two oil paintings titled “A Trip Down Memory Lane” and “My Beatles Collection,” where she used imprimatura, a technique in which a graphite pencil was used to draw and sketch after staining her canvas.

Duron said both artworks portray her own “memories, emotions and sentimental things.”

“Art for Everyone 2018” ran until Sept 4.
