Ang INK just opened it’s latest exhibit at Post (formerly Pablo Gallery) in Cubao X. The exhibit will run until July 20, 2013.

A Curious Buffet is a celebration of everyday objects, using common kitchen items and utensils to create different art pieces.

The opening night was packed! The gallery owner had to regulate the flow of people to the second floor because it had gotten to a point where the foot traffic was teetering close to capacity.

Interestingly though, the exhibit almost didn’t push through. We had two scheduling changes months apart, the first one happened because the pieces wouldn’t be ready in time (we had to substitute a different exhibit on that one!) and the second change happened because the gallery we relocated to flaked out on us.

The Post was our nth gallery option and quite frankly a godsend. I don’t think the opening would have been this successful if it were held anywhere else.

Here are my pieces for the exhibit, painted on old school chopping boards bought in a rural store in Laguna.
