Digital Art Moves It For AdU Art Gallery’s A Creative Reaction 5

Date Posted: Nov 2, 2010 at 08:11:25 AM

A unique exhibit showcasing digital art created by one of the country’s top visual artists opened recently at the Adamson University Art Gallery.


A Creative Reaction 5: A Digital Art Innovation is the 18th one-man show staged by Lito de Guzman, currently the college secretary and a faculty member of the University of the East’s College of Fine Arts. Creative Reaction 5 follows de Guzman’s last one-man show, A Creative Reaction 4, held at the Power Plant Mall in 2009.


De Guzman’s latest show was borne from an idea conceived during his period of convalescence after a heart illness. During the time spent getting well, the artist tried to go back to his art using several mediums, including his favored monochrome ball point pen and oil pastel. He would be unsatisfied with these attempts until after a few accidental clicks on his computer saw him developing a form of art he calls “abstract expressionism.” His work on the computer would turn out several artworks, all of which forms the body of his current exhibit.


Present at the opening ceremony on November 19 were de Guzman’s colleagues from UE and the Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation, Inc. (FPPF). Students who came to the opening were given a rare bonus as the artist himself gave an impromptu lecture on his art and his methods.


The show is staged together by the Cultural Affairs Office, FPPF, and the UE College of Fine Arts. Exhibit runs until December 10. Yael Esperat
