5 Must-See Works of Art in Coco Martin’s Resort-Like Home
Select pieces by National Artists complete the actor’s relaxing haven
From displaying framed photographs, setting up interesting vignettes, and showcasing various art pieces—homeowners always find a way to inject a bit of flair and character into their spaces.
Actor Coco Martin is one of the many who invest in these treasured finds as seen in his sprawling home. The moment you step into the space, one would immediately notice the unique works of art seen in different corners and unexpected spots. Here are five pieces we loved most:
You've probably heard it a hundred times before—first impressions last. The main door of the house sure does make you stop and admire the metal sculptures adorning it. These pieces, which represent the Pisces zodiac sign of Coco's Lola Matilde, were by Abdulmari Asia Imao, National Artist for Visual Arts.
A few steps from the door are two white columns. Instead of going with the original plan of using wood cladding, Coco opted for these tree-shaped metal artwork by Miguel Aguas. These works of art somehow complement the details on the door—keeping the look cohesive.

In the living area, different decor pieces share the spotlight. On a table behind one of the sofas is a piece by brass sculptor Ronald Castrillo from his Balloons in life series. It playfully depicts a mother and her child playing with balloons in different colors. The colors of the sculpture stand out and catch the eye in a space dominated by neutrals.

Serving as the focal point in the living area is this commissioned piece by Trek Valdizno that covers the entire width of the wall. It's a must-see work of art that requires retouching from time to time as it's completed using a live organic material.

In Coco's bedroom, a corner was transformed into a mini work area. To break the monotony of white walls, a semi-abstract painting by National Artist for Visual Arts Arturo Luz takes center stage.
