Art Fair 2019 in Pictures

A visit to the yearly multi-level parking spaces in Makati filled with artworks, photographs, and installations.

It took a lot of self-convincing before I decided to visit this year’s Art Fair 2019. The thought of being socially awkward got to me for a minute but I just made certain provisions so I don’t need to worry. First, I decided to go on a Friday, the opening day of the fair. Then, I went early to avoid the foot traffic in the late afternoon ‘til the evening.

My plan worked and it led me to enjoy checking out all the impressive local and international artwork displayed at The Link carpark. I must honestly say that I could probably never afford a piece of art at the fair. I keep on going because of the motivation that I get from seeing all the masterpieces that were meticulously created. Here are some works that caught my eye at this year’s Art Fair. All photos taken by me using my Samsung Galaxy S9.
