SOLENN Heussaff’s vision to turn street life into art comes to life as Globe brings “Kalsada,” Heussaff’s second solo exhibit, to art lovers in Bonifacio Global City.
“Kalsada” opened last Oct. 19 at the Provenance Gallery of Modern Art located in Shangri-La at the Fort.
Heussaff described the exhibit as a collaboration between her and her three-year-old nephew, Kaeden.
“The subjects are based on people I’ve seen on the streets, but even if their surroundings and expressions are quite sad, the paintings are still colorful. It was Kaeden who used so much color,” said Heussaff.
Several pieces in her exhibit were also based on Heussaff’s experience with the children of Biri Island, Northern Samar, whom she met in her episode of Scenezoned, Globe Postpaid’s award-winning online video series that follows the journey of different personalities.
Art aficionados who wish to take home one of Heussaff’s works will contribute to a good cause. Heussaff will donate a portion of the sales of her paintings in “Kalsada” to Kalipay Negrense, a foundation that supports street children in Bacolod City. Kalsada will remain open to the public for free until today. (PR)
