MANILA, Philippines – Artphile by Galerie CMG recently opened its “Lifescapes” exhibit featuring the works of members of the non-profit organization Aroma Art Atelier.

Aroma Art Atelier was founded on November 2016 in Toledo City, Cebu, by Orley Yu Ypon, a multi-awarded Filipino contemporary realist. Through his many local and international achievements that have brought honor to the country, the National Commission on Culture and the Arts awarded Orley the “Ani ng Dangal” award in 2011.

Ypon founded the group in order to share ideas and to foster camaraderie among other painters in the city. 

Aroma Art Atelier has become a non-profit organization that supports, teaches and encourages young and aspiring artists to reach their full potential as complete artists. The group is dedicated to nurture and provide basic training, tools and materials to enhance the young artists’ skills, and they are conducting these workshops for free. Their advocacy is to support every young artist to pursue arts by sharing their knowledge and skills to the next generation of Filipino painters.

“Lifescapes,” which opened last February 24, showcases the works of Ypon, Darby Vincent Alcoseba, Francisca Juarez, Crispin Bobier, Rembert Quimada, Romar Quimada, Daniel Yu, Tranquilino Ypon, Ricky Eslao, Dariush Libre, Renulo Pautan, Mark Belicario, Winnafe Adlawan, Edzel Libre, Kim Postrano, Ruel Amistad, Rainer Duhaylungsod, Lucas Ranola and Jerome Sato Castillo.

The exhibit will run until March 20.
