Bobby Ongpin’s son, Julian, is doing his own efforts to help other people. Julian is opening an art gallery to showcase emerging young artists, a select stable of Filipino and international ones as well.
The gallery is called Joya— for Julian Ongpin Young Artists.
Joya is at the second floor of Alphaland Makati Place. Its debut show is “Frontiers,” featuring emerging Aussie artist Henry Curchod with his series “Reductions,” alongside Pinoy photographer Artu Nepomuceno with his first abstract offering, “Psychedelic Warfare.”
“Frontiers” opens Oct. 1 at 6 p.m. The show aims to highlight the different states of movement and tension within each artist’s collection. As Julian puts it, “I hope to shine a light that is both refined and sincere, and in this way share something great with the world.”
