Stroke of Genius

The art world is a universe in itself where the vast space springs life into new forms. When ideas are borne from cerebral eureka to one's stream of consciousness as it signals the beginning of the process of creation.    An immersion to the unknown where energies take control of the artist at work and revels in a celebratory exposition in art formation. As a result, the canvas becomes a field of dreams where one's expression of artistry is defined by  personal style creating individual marks of distinction--thus arises the birth of an artist.


Breaking the manila art scene is 26 year old Gabriel S. Tiongson with a launching solo show entitled "Neurana"(short term for neuroanatomy-the branch of anatomy that deals with the nervous system).  Fascinating pen-on-paper illustrations and experimental acrylic paintings depicting puns of nature and the gall done in freehand showcase unmistakable brilliant artistry. With a background in medicine, Tiongson's semiotic creations stroked in striking black lines present the imaginary in reflection of his deep cerebral imagery.  If you look into each masterpiece, one is taken into an unknown world of mind boggling possibilities undefined by a school of thought. Intelligent, bold and symbolic, his masterpieces are a fusion of satires, morbidity, humor and uncanny expositions of a beautiful mind--definitely the next artist to watch out for. Check out Gabby Tiongson's first one-man show "Neurana" on August 26 at Vinyl on Vinyl Gallery, The Collective located at 7274 Malugay St., Makati city.
