ANATHEMA Art Exhibit


When The Good and The Bad becomes a demarcation line between what is morally just or not, there are things that do not fall among the two territories. Many times, we are too timid to venture out among the gray areas. What more to set foot on the dark side. But unless we acknowledge the sordid aspects of our binary human nature, we will never become whole.


ANATHEMA exemplifies the things that are deemed too wayward in our prejudiced notions of the Ideal, of the Ethical. And because the sinister is depicted, ANATHEMA deviates from the orthodox conceptions of aesthetics. Art for the sake of beauty alone is a form of denial, an inability to realize one’s primordial fears. Thus, in this two-man show, moral and spiritual dilemmas are placed center stage to give light on the veracity of man’s dark possibilities.


ANATHEMA showcases figurative and representational artworks filled with occult images of the ethical taboos, moral decays, and profanities. Such eccentric views coupled with unconventional styles are proofs that this visual exhibit does not tread the path of mainstream Art.


ANATHEMA is pop surrealism in its purest element.


Dangerous. Disturbing. Visually palatable.


This is artistic radicalism.

Help Build the Kampingganon Elementary School Reading Center










Kampingganon Elementary School has 286 students, 10 classrooms and 11 teachers including the principal. This is also the site of Tsinelas Association's proposed reading center.

You can help build the reading center in the small barangay of Kampingganon in Bantayan Island by donating children's books to Tsinelas. You can leave the books at Sun.Star Daily P. del Rosario Street, Cebu City (please label package with TSINELAS or Insoy Ninal) or contact 09228243800.

If you're from Manila, please contact Yowee @ 0916-7970140 or leave her a private message at yohwee@gmail.com

This is a continuing project of Tsinelas Association, a non-profit organization that provides educational assistance to poor students in mountain and coastal barangays in Cebu. The first reading center was built in the mountain barangay of Colonia (Colonia Elementary School), Tuburan north of Cebu.

Tsinelas put up reading centers in these public schools because they do not have libraries. Students even lack textbooks. In some cases, teachers even have to place the books inside the cabinet (and lock it) for fear of being damaged due to overuse.

With your help, Tsinelas hopes to put up as many reading centers in public schools as possible. They also provide reading appreciation seminars.

Please help us spread the word.

For more information, please visit their website (still under construction).

Thank you very much! :)
