|09.10.2013 – Fresh from the successful launch of his "Soft & Nasty" plush doll at the recently concluded STGCC (Singapore Toy Game and Comic Convention) Anjo Bolarda gets a spotlight at the Vinyl on Vinyl art gallery for his first ever solo show featuring new works and some exclusive prints.
The launch happened last Saturday at the VoV to friends, colleagues, and walk-in visitors who have heard of his works by word of mouth. Quite a festive night as new works where on exhibit and it will run for the next two weeks.
For the unknown Anjo Bolarda is a self-taught artist who has built quite long accomplishments having his works showcased and exhibited in several international venues who also founded art organizations. He is a self-made individual who is down to earth but has already accomplished others still thriving to succeed in this field.
Bolarda self-proclaim art style called “Sukiyaki-Western” (coined from Tarantino’s film Sukiyaki Western, Django) is a marriage of Japanese art, Western street art, and low brow illustrations.
He employs a lot of flowy florals, female characters (which he calls them Nasties), animals, mythological creatures and typography in his works. Like all artists some of his creations and illustrations are based from personal experience with narratives shared by others with some moments of depression.
There’s something more going on Anjo Bolarda’s works than meets the eye and all you need to do see it for yourself.
For those the uninitiated or has not seen his works here are some set of images taken during the launch of his first ever solo show at Vinyl in Vinyl. You can also see his first ever Nasties plush doll and art prints that was being sold at STGCC…
Nasty Hills the first ever solo show of Anjo Bolarda will run for the next two weeks. For more details about the art being exhibit visit Vinyl on Vinyl art gallery located at The Collective in Malugay St., Makati City.
