Last May 15, we were invited by a good friend to an art exhibit called “”Coup de Maitre”. A premiere exhibit launch hosted by Eugenio Lopez Center. The vision is to refine opportunities through the organizer’s passion in documentation and learning.
9 multi-awarded Rizaleno artists who represented the ‘Genesis’ of exhibits premiered a once ancestral mansion to the Lopez family, by opening its doors to art and the public. Among all amazing art display, one definitely caught my attention, Tanayan impressionist, Jun Tiongco, painted his own custom-made motorcycle.
Jun is also an owner of a biker destination in Sampaloc Tanay, Lutong Pugon.
“We earn through commercial art. We paint flowers, people, nature, sceneries, because those are the common things that sell. But this one here, this one is different. Impressionists paint what we see, but this one is extra ordinary and it appeals to me. I really like it. When I look at the bike, it makes me happy.”
The artist explained how much he has become fond of these customized motorcycles. Asked if he’ll be painting more bikes, “I want to paint a big bike, a classic one. If someone would be kind enough to leave a bike in my restaurant for a week, then I might.”
