Artists transform BGC walls into larger-than-life masterpieces

If you happen to be in Metro Manila and you find yourself in need of an art fix, head straight for Bonifacio Global City. Several murals have emerged across the cityscape, and people couldn't help but stare.

   A few weeks ago, international artists FAILE, CYRCLE, AkaCORLEONE, Kristin Farr, Drew Merritt and Nate Frizzell, travelled to the Philippines to take part in the ArtBGC NextAct One Festival, a weeklong mural-centric event touted as the first of its kind in the country.

   Curated by LeBasse Projects, and held in partnership with the Bonifacio Arts Foundation (BAFI) and Globe Telecom, the world-renowned masters were joined by local talents Egg Fiasco and Anjo Bolarda in painting larger-than-life masterpieces on iconic BGC walls. While the artists had different aesthetics, one common theme they worked on was urban living. Check out the murals below:
