SpringtimeHindi Kami Namamatay
EVENT #: 70243
Eskinita Art Farm opens 2021 with a solo exhibit by Anthony Victoria entitled “Hindi Kami Namamatay”. Victoria, educated in advertising at the University of Santo Tomas, is trained in animation versed in the corporate world. For ten years setting aside the visual arts, Victoria was once again invited to group exhibitions being a member of Kalye Kolektib. In his first exhibition, Coping Mechanism, two years ago, he paid homage to every nook and cranny of his personal life–as he has been fixated with metal as an ode to his aluminum cane.
Victoria prefers aluminum etching and he has been effective in using it. He relies heavily on research and appropriates his image to suit his desired iconography. After painting the appropriated form with enamel, he soaks them in resin to resist. The final process involves using an aluminum brush to add texture to the rough finish. In his upcoming solo exhibition, Hindi Kami Namamatay, he emerges from his comfort zone and takes a pun intended at what is happening to his surroundings and our social history.
