Pinoy Ako: An Art Exhibit in Saigon

Nothing makes a person feel unanchored as much as living in another country.  Interestingly, that same feeling is the driving factor that causes a person to find something that will make him feel “at home” and delight in being Pinoy.

This coming celebration of the Philippine Independence Day in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, artist and art professor, Jensen Moreno set out to do just that.  Amazingly, she has brought together some 30 Filipino artists here and abroad to showcase what we Filipinos are all about through a remarkable collection of art.  This art road show will span 11 days starting with a press conference at the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Museum on June 12.

Participating artists include: Jensen Moreno, Joel Mendez M.D., Fidel Sarmiento, Nomer Adona, Aleah Angeles, Czarina Danielle Yap, Hershey Malinis, Jama Ramos, John Paul Lakan Olivares, Joma Ramos, Nasser Zulueta, Phoebe Beltran, Racky Eugenio, Julmard Vicente, Rafael La Madrid, Alvin Paraguison, Cyril Turao, Joey Cobcobo, Jayson Cortez, Edwin Martinez, and Aubrey Fajardo.

Other participating artists lent their talent to the exhibition including: Emil Alarcon, Jessa Almirol, Jay Bermudez, Rey Bollozos, Reynald Borillo, Melanio Bulauitan III, Romilo Caballero, Lawrence Cervantes, Joel Chavez, Gabriel Escudero, Yayie Garcia, Anne Catherine Malubay, Jay Marquez, Martin Maturan, Marvin Quizon, Marc Aran Reyes, Alvin Sales, Jhong Tangiday, Jay Torres, Jazmine Villanueva, and Antonio Pelobello Jr.

  4. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s
    equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have
    hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few
    men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I found this
    during my search for something concerning this.
