You might even chat with some of these artists and relish the view.
It is one of PAP’s aims to expose the general public regarding the art form of printmaking. Printmaking has been around the world for centuries. There is a massive legacy among the world’s greatest artists that delved into printmaking. Spain’s Francisco Goya’s los Caprichos have exposed the horrors of war centuries ago. 20th Century luminary Pablo Picasso has made several prints alongside his paintings. Andy Warhol has cemented pop art in the global consciousness with his serigraph portraits of celebrities like Marilyn Monroe. Even our very own National Artists who delved into this oft-misunderstood art. Ben Cabrera solidified his visions via printmaking and he himself is a PAP member as well as a supporter of printmaking.
Among the current PAP members are known masters of Philippine Visual Arts. Pandy Aviado who has been quite prominent and visible in the Philippine Art Scene with his bold visions. Along with his is his fellow printmaker and educator Raul Isidro who has articulated his thoughts on stark and compelling abstraction both on canvas and in print. PAP is also proud of its stable of upcoming young artists such as the recent 13 Artist awardee Joey Cobcobo who is among the new generation who seek to push the envelope of printmaking in the 21st Century.
Their works along with the prints of Joey Cobcobo, Fill delacruz, Janus delacruz, Benjie Torrado, Noel Farrol, Buen Abrigo, Angelo Magno and other noted printmakers will be available at the Art by the Bay. PAP also conducts workshops on printmaking for interested groups.
