Kayo and I are currently buried in different types of art projects. And this time, aside from just the usual art direction and brand development we do at Honeycomb, we find we’re handling more and more event production that are centered in the arts, which allows us to work with many different creative people. In fact, we’re currently gearing up for another city wide art event (keep posted!). After having experienced the first one (you can read about it here) and having witnessed how it works, we’re looking towards a bigger, more epic and more organized art festival! Can’t wait to meet this year’s roster of amazing local and foreign talents!
And because I’m getting all excited, it made me go over the photos taken that time last year during One. Then, I found this wonderful series taken some weeks after when Kayo, the kids and I did a little photo shoot by Kristin Farr‘s murals in BGC.
Kristin was one of the eight contemporary street muralist invited to take part in One and it was such a pleasure to meet her and see her work in person. Her geometric designs and patterns look simple, but in reality, it takes a considerable amount of skill and precision to be able to pull off what she does.
Not only is K-Farr an amazing and hard working artist, she is also very sweet. She has this positive and upbeat vibe about her that naturally attracts people. The girls and I warmed up to her right off the bat.
A few weeks after the festival, she was so kind to have sent a gift package for us containing a dress for me and leggings for the girls in the patterns she herself designed! This line of clothing was released last year through a brand called Nooworks, a company that creates comfortable vintage style clothing using fresh new patterns by different featured artists.
I love them. And the girls were quite happy to receive them too! So we scheduled a fun little photo shoot right away, which we called “KFarr Dress Up Day,” against the murals K-Farr, herself, painted right here in Manila. Here are the photos we took that day…
These were taken only six months ago, but look at how little the girls are! They’ve changed and grown so much since.
Unfortunately, they didn’t make them for boys so here’s Kayo feeling a little bummed about it… 😛
I just love how vibrant these murals are and how they make our streets a whole lot cheerful! And I do think it’s pretty awesome that I and the girls get to walk around wearing these designs! It’s like spreading a little bit of happiness wherever we go.
Again, thank you so much, Kristin for the clothes. Good thing they’re stretchy! It’s been half a year but we all still wear them 😉
These murals can be found in different areas around Bonifacio Global City. The large one is on Bonifacio Technology Center.
