Pasakalye Artists Show us How I've done
Pasakalye is a group of local artists who are well known for their street art usually held during the weekends. Through the leadership of Maricar Docyogen, local entrepreneur and owner of Bookends, an old bookshop, the group was formed in 2016. The group aims to help promote the work of local artists.
Since then, members of the group have made numerous art exhibitions and events, which include painting sessions at the venue and pencil sketch sessions.
For the launch of the Baguio Creative Festival this year, the following artists took part in this talent show: Fredi Agunoy, Ged Alangui, Julian Almirol, Roland Bay-an, Roni Cabilla, Buddy Cabrera, Mario Calub, Joseph Domirez Jr., Eric Egualada, Resty Lopez, Wigan Warren Nauyac, Gilbert Rafer, Tor Sagud, Arcely Talicuad, Willie Teves, Jonathan Villabos.
Private Sector Support for Arts
Like most creative events during the festival, private sector support is key in shaping the painting at the location and location. Local paint maker, Davies Paints Philippines, provided the paint materials for Pasakalye artists.
Ms mentioned. Kath Mendiola of Davies Paints has long been supporting art initiatives in the Cordilleras. This started with the Stobosa Project in La Trinidad. This was followed with their support for Jose Jose's Tinatik's installation in 2017. They also support the Education Department's Eskwela Brigada initiatives.
Ms. said. I wonder they are excited and very happy to be among the sponsors of Baguio Creative Festival. Baguio has long been known for his artists, so they believe that such a festival will certainly flourish with such creativity in the city.
