|12.07.2010 - The weekend here in the Philippines is very much clustered with events happening in the morning with the TS118 Super Size Outdoor Diorama, and at the evening with the exhibit of Indonesian artist Arkiv Vilmansa.|
The talented illustrator, painter, and known for designing cartoon-like figures will be having an exhibit at the Vinyl on Vinyl this Saturday of December 11, 2010.
Arkiv Vilmansa has been doing this since 2005 shortly after finishing his Bachelor degree in Architecture.
Arkiv's first debut with vinyl figurine was called Arkiv Instant.
After Arkiv Instant, many exciting vinyl toys followed including a redesign of Mickey Mouse for Disney Asia.
“Out of Nothing” is a portal into Arkiv’s parallel world. Harnessing creations from his lucid dreams. Eloquently using each stroke to make curves so vivid and fluid as it forms along the surface. Slowly embodying such playfully bold creatures that evoke a strange charm to them. Some having bunny ears, others having ears that resemble a mouse. Most vaguely reflecting creatures from our daily lives yet cleverly manages to escape such conformity. Possessing dynamic movements that make you feel that they are going to break through the very canvass in which they were formed.
The Out of Nothing exhibits runs from December 11 (opening night) to December 31 at Vinyl on Vinyl Gallery at The Collective 7274 Malugay St Makati. December 9 is sketch night at 7pm (Arkiv to doodle on your sketchbooks) and December 10 Arkiv to do live art at B side.
