The exhibit speaks of the immense possibilities of masterful cultural representation through figures and forms, colors and shapes. It showcases a polarity of subject matter and messages reinforced by the unpredictable techniques used by the artists.

Figures & Forms represents some of the Philippines’ foremost visual artists who earned critical acclaim and recognition. Their styles range from abstract to figurative to expressionist. The collection includes artworks by BenCab, Khristina Manansala, Kublai Millan, and Andrew Tan.

Of Art and Wine: Figures & Forms is on exhibit for purchase until August 27, 2022, in partnership with The Artisan Cellars. The changing exhibits at the hotel’s Gallery C bring the classic features of wine and art that celebrate life and culture.
