Shelved Wishes is the introductory collaborative project of five talented and inspiring Filipino artists – Raine Sarmiento, Borg Sinaban, Rex Dasig Aguilar, Kevin Roque, and Sab Palmares. These artists make artworks for gallery exhibitions, hotels and restaurants, magazines, newspapers and books, of which some were awarded by local government institutions, and were featured on print and digital media—both in the country and abroad.
Hearing from Raine the idea behind Shelved Wishes – childhood dreams coming to life through various mediums – I couldn’t help but be in awe and remember my own childhood dreams and reflect upon it. If I would be painting a picture of my childhood dream it would probably be entering another universe since I was so into anime at that time. I wanted something more exciting, more adventurous than my current life. I guess in some ways I am painting that picture now – a girl that is always in another place, searching for something she couldn’t put into words. I love how these artists captured their dreams so beautifully in their chosen medium. I secretly want to join the project but alas – I will settle with fangirling over the artworks! It’s so well thought-out and wonderfully done – as expected from professional artists!
If you want to get your hands on these 5pc postcards, they’ll be available at Roots Katipunan (Unit 106 FBR Arcade Building, 317 Katipunan Avenue Barangay Loyola Heights, Quezon City) and on Raine’s online shop! Follow their social media accounts too as there might be upcoming exhibitions and new artworks to emerge from this collaborative project! Let’s support Filipino talent!
This artwork was selected as one of 12 prints in Moonleaf Tea Shop‘s 2017 planner. I’m so happy and honored! Moonleaf Tea Shop offers beverages in a cafe style environment and have several branches all over the country from Baguio to Taguig city.
I received a copy of the planner (plus a lot of gift certificates) a few weeks back. My art is featured on the month of October (too bad it wasn’t November keke~). Look at those gorgeous artworks – it feels so awkward to be included with them!!
Crossing my fingers for more collaborations in the future. 🙂
