Flow 03 is out now! I got to attend the formal launch at Silverlens Gallery last Tuesday (thanks Team Flow!!). I'll just finish a few more works for school, and I'll be back here with the rest of the Flow 03 launch pics.
03: FLOW MAKES HISTORY
Renowned and respected names are going with the FLOW. Top lifestyle and design gurus Ricky Toledo and Chito Vijandre, the proprietors behind the home and design concept stores Firma, Felicity, and AC+632, hold the reigns for FLOW 03.
In FLOW magazine’s third issue, Ricky and Chito take the readers on a journey to the past. This issue brings to life the vanishing art of paper cutwork, showcases paintings and puppets which are inspired from local folklore, and makes available to the reading public some antique pieces that have never been shown before. In his quest to promote literacy and education, another collector shares with us his love for his prized possessions. This issue also tells us the story of how a Filipino scenographer made it big in New York, and treats our eyes to items that are updated by visionaries to fit today’s times. Of course, an issue of FLOW would not be complete without its array of arresting images, insightful articles, and inspired layouts.
Certainly, one cannot fully understand the future without realizing the importance of the past. FLOW 03 promotes and preserves these traditions, believing that it is our heritage that makes us what we are now, and what we will be.
To formally launch the third issue, FLOW held a special exhibition and sale of works by the contributors and artists featured in the magazine on March 17, 2009 at the Silverlens Gallery. The exhibit will run from March 17 to 28, 2009, and is composed of elegant pieces by Bea Valdes, Wynn Wynn Ong, George Sy Gobio and Robert Langenegger; lush artworks from Allan Balisi, Bruihn, Patricia Eustaquio, Nikki Luna, Troy Ignacio, Jun-Jun Sta. Ana, Randy Solon, Alex Tee, and Tatong Torres; outstanding photographs by Mannix Santos and Kadin Tiu; and a magnificent collaboration between Juan Caguicla and Ronald Ventura.
FLOW 03: The Launch would not have been possible without the support of Absolut Vodka, Restaurante Pia Y Damaso, B&B Italia, Hotel Celeste, Jewelmer, Vagary, Alternatives Food Corporation, and Silverlens Gallery.
