EXHIBITS

The Little Big Art Show

Welcome to Vintana’s Little Big Art Show. With astonishing creations from the minds and hands of a select group of seventeen artists, this show will take you deep into the heart of obsession, history, solitude, freedom, rebellion, love, and loss amid a precarious era. It’s a small show with big talent, but more than that, The Little Big Art Show revitalizes tropes from different generational practices to present their visually compelling and strange narratives in a new light. This online group exhibition includes works from Pardo de Leon, Jonathan Ching, Julie Lluch, Kiko Escora, Ernest Concepcion, Iggy Rodriguez, Lena Cobangbang, Paolo Icasas, Ehrran Montoya, Tin Garcia, Jucar Raquepo, Krista Nogueras, Denver Garza, Arvin Flores, Isha Naguiat, Tom Bucag, and Mai Saporsantos. While staying true to their oeuvre, each work embraces the cult of genius whether they’re extracting from formalist structures or breaking away from conventional themes.

Spirits of Unsung Christmas Carols

In celebration of the Christmas season and Vintana.ph’s gallery opening, we prepared a group art exhibit entitled “Spirits of Unsung Christmas Carols”. In this exhibition, Vintana presents vibrant and meaningful Christmas-themed artworks by emerging artists across the Philippines. Each work has their own stories behind them—scenes and images that speak of sweet Christmas childhood memories like a caroling street child, a mechanical toy box with 80s and 90s vintage Filipino toys, dynamic strokes of abstract shapes and colors, and much more.
