Garage Space

YES! (Philippines) - - Cover Story -

Di­rek Richard Somes’s work as a vis­ual artist is also present in the garage, this time in the form of sev­eral mu­rals. The big­gest one de­picts a fly­ing ea­gle, bor­dered by the word “LEG­END” on top and the phrase “LivE AND BE fREE” at the bot­tom.

This par­tic­u­lar mu­ral, says Aljur, rep­re­sents his state of mind at the time of the ren­o­va­tion—when he was still a bach­e­lor. “Para kas­ing ano, e… Start na ’ko ng bagong chap­ter sa buhay na mag‑isa na. Live and be free, di ba? Agila, di ba lu­mili­pad nang malaya? Soar­ing high. i was down, re­ally down be­fore. The flow­ers rep­re­sent my soft side, and the women also.”

The red gate may keep out un­wanted vis­i­tors, but that doesn’t de­ter Aljur and Kylie’s two stray cats, Cloud and Pu­tot, from com­ing and go­ing as they please. The cou­ple also own a Ben­gal cat named Bruce.
