WORKS of a Thomasian alumna were featured in an art exhibit in the United Kingdom that ran mid-April until the 30th.

Among the collections featured in PAC:K: Philippine Art Collective were that of Advertising Arts graduate Yveese Belen, which featured human figures with faceless oblong heads and thin, straight arms and legs, wearing loose and colorful clothes.

The works of another Filipino artist, Malcolm Mendones, were also showcased in the exhibit organized by London-based Filipino artists.

As a student, Belen received the Benavides Award for excellence in visual arts in 2001. She won the grand prize in the Art Petron national student art competition the same year.

Belen recently participated in the seventh Kristo Manila, an annual Lenten art exhibit organized by Artery Manila and Gallery Nine in Mandaluyong, together with more than 100 artists, including Varsitarian photography editor Jilson Seckler Tiu and art director Carla Gamalinda.
