“Curious,” the first solo art exhibition of Gil Bien, curated by Michelle Villamor, was exclusively launched last February 5 at the Fashion Interiors Showroom in Makati City.
Gil Bien is a contemporary artist and former visual director, and stage designer for more than a decade in ABS-CBN. He now works as the Vice President for Dreamweaver Visual Exponent and Lead Designer for Hotset DSGN. In his early years, the subject of his paintings were leaning into socio political issues in surrealism and realism, inspired by his icons Salvador Dali and Mondrian, along with his mentor and friend Gus Albor. His style later shifted to Abstract Impressionism which is evident in his art pieces that were on his art exhibition.
Invited to cut the ribbon were Pakistan Ambassador to the Philippines, His Excellency Imtiaz A Kasi, Past Governor of Lions Club 301-A2 Wennie Bico, Etihad Country Manager Saeed Ahmad, Johnny Litton, actress Jean Saburit, and wellness guru and TV host Cory Quirino. Narvacan Mayor Chavit Singson missed the inauguration. Mr. Saeed Ahmad raffled off one business class roundtrip air ticket to Europe. Guests sang and danced with the music entertainment by Marcy David and his band. The event was hosted by commercial and print ad model Alexandra Torres Camus.
Discover more of Gil Bien's work until the end of February 2022. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Nurture the Children Foundation of Pampanga, Inc.
