Around the City Pilot Episode | Go Skateboarding Day Cebu 2017

 

Around the City is a web series where we feature artists, musicians, clothing brands, and everything in between. We believe that there’s a big part of Cebu that needs to be showcased, and that’s the aim of the show.

In this very first episode, we tagged along Cebu’s skateboarding enthusiasts in their celebration of Go Skateboarding Day last June 21st and spoke with skater/filmer Cliff Rigor and McKinley Jakosalem about the current state of skateboarding in the city.

Check it out! Feel free to like, tag, and share.

Recap | Cevolutión Public Art Exhibit

Recap | Cevolutión Public Art Exhibit

As Cebu grows into a burgeoning metropolis, our art scene and creative culture should grow along with it. Last July 15, eight murals were unveiled on the exterior walls of Crossroads Cebu to explore the evolution of Cebu inspired by the growth and development in the city. Headed by Create Cebu, the CEVOLUTIÓN Public Art Exhibit was a step in the right direction in terms of cultivating the growth of our rich creative talent and providing a venue for artists and enthusiast in the city.  Featuring the work of contemporary Cebuano artists KIDLAT, DAOT, Lean Reboja, Golda King, Ronyel Compra, and Ivan Zaldarriaga, CEVOLUTIÓN highlighted the diversity of imagination, skill, and talent of local artists as well as increase access to and awareness of Cebuano art.

Despite the rich creative and artistic talent that we have in Cebu, we have never been thought of as a destination for creative culture and arts. We are more known for Sinulog, white-sand beaches, and Lechon than we are for our artistry and creative talent, and while we are very proud to be known for all those mentioned, we should also start motivating, cultivating, and elevating our creative identity. We believe opportunities afforded by events such as CEVOLUTIÓN is a great way to show the Cebuanos that yes, art should be part of a growing economy and should coexist with technology and even commerce.  Public art installations should also demonstrate that beyond recognition and a “pat on the back”, artists also deserve proper monetary compensation for their work. After all, just like any professional, they’ve studied and worked hard on their craft for years, and spends hours, days, even weeks creating murals and artwork for the enjoyment of everyone.

Will Cebu ever be known as an art and culture capital or destination? With the talent that we have, it’s not impossible. With the right attitude towards art, and through proper support from both public and private sector, our creative community should continue to thrive in the years to come.

The event also featured a Pop-up Print & Sticker Sale by A SPACE Cebu, a Gallery-Store Flash Sale by Holicow PH, and a Mini Music Fest presented by 22 Tango Records  featuring THINKING CHAIR, THE CRISIS, THREE-LEGGED MEN, LOOP, GROOVEMATICS, SILINGAN NI FELICITY, and BETHANY. Though the rain was pouring heavily that day, it didn’t stop the festivities at all. CEVOLUTIÓN had the perfect mix of art and music and was one of the most organized events we’ve been to in Cebu. This bodes well for the future and had set the bar high for events to come.

Check out some photos that Matt Blanes and RJ Galgo took at the event below and stay tuned for the video recap by the CEVOLUTIÓN documentation crew by following Create Cebu’s Facebook page.

Revere and Eight Wolves linked up again to produce a capsule collection consisting of a tee, a cap, and a pomade variant.

Sharing a common love and passion for what they do, both French and Shand Fontanilla, the founder of Eight Wolves, are a natural fit with each other, which clearly shows in both their collaboration. The collection also features a Ralph Espiritu designed shirt and Siamese Rat designed front embroidery collaboration cap.
