Ga­lerie Joaquin

Harper's Bazaar Art (Indonesia) - - Exhibition Highlight - Om­bok

If one of the func­tions of an art gallery is to pre­serve, then the Ga­lerie Joaquin has done its part. Not only nur­tur­ing upand-com­ing con­tem­po­rary vis­ual artists, they have also fo­cused their ef­fort on showcasing the art­works of es­tab­lished masters, such as their ma­jor show­ing of Na­tional Artist, Ar­turo Luz, Fed­erico Aguilar Al­cuaz, Ab­dul­mari Imao, and Pres­i­den­tial Medal of Merit, Ju­ve­nal Sanso. Ga­lerie Joaquin was founded in 2002 in the City of San Juan in Metro Manila, Philip­pines, and they were the first Filipino gallery to open in Sin­ga­pore. Their fea­tured artist, Rus­tom Cle­ofe “Om­bok” Vil­lamor, whose ex­hi­bi­tion held ear­lier this year was a de­fin­i­tive hit, will be bring­ing his art-im­i­tat­ing-life art­works to Bazaar Art Jakarta, namely his pri­mor­dial and oth­er­worldly de­pic­tions of sea-life— in­flu­enced from his child­hood home on the shores of his na­tive Sa­mar, no doubt.
