RL Picks: Pinoy Art as Wall Accents

Add a distinct Filipino touch to your space with these picks that pay homage to our artists


What better way to decorate your space but with proud Pinoy items created by our talented artists. These pieces won't just add life to your home, they will also be instant conversation starters.

If you're looking for Filipino-made pieces, make sure you drop by Galerie Astra and Gallery Big --- both located at LRI Design Plaza.

Art collectors Philip and Amy Uy shares this tip: "Buy art with your heart. Rather than buying because of the artist or the price, you have to like the painting first. Can you imagine bringing home a painting and not wanting to look at it? Buying art is relationship. It won’t work if you’re not really into it."

Picks by Dagny Madamba, Paula de Guzman, and Tala Singson. Photographed by Dairy Darilag and Dakila Angeles.
