The Republic Art has been active in the art industry for quite some time now.  It has well selected artworks of master artists and young painters. Politicians, businessmen and celebrities are their usual clients.  (paki-sabi ibili rin ako!)

“Our team is composed of young collectors. Magkakaibigan kami na mahilig sa  painting. Nagsimula kami sa pag-attend ng mga exhibit tapos yung ishare naming sa isat isa kung anu mga bago naming collection. Then later on we realized, why not put up a small gallery and help the artists,” Art Associate Stephen San Luis says. (may budget ang mga friends ha!)

The Gallery’s first featured artworks were from its partners’ personal collections. “When we decided to put up Republic Art, we didn’t have pieces for sale. Kaya bawat isa samin, nagdecide na ano yung pwede naming iletgo at ibenta. Nagsimula lang kami sa 12 pieces.” (sana pinadala nyo nalang sa house ko mga yun!)

They started with utilizing social media for posting their artworks for sale.

“Nakatulong yun for marketing and sa mga inquiries. Pero siempre iba pa rin yung may mga contacts ka na mga nangongolekta talaga at yung may physical kang gallery. Kaya nageffort talaga kami magkaroon kahit maliit lang muna.” (give nyo sakin contact numbers ng mga pogi nyong clients!)

Since the team members have their respective jobs, interested clients need to book for an appointment to view the art pieces.  (gusto ko rin ng booking!)

“Nagwowork naman yung by appointment set up naming for now. Lalo na mga busy rin yung mga clients na galing sa ibat ibang industriya. Nagwork din sya sa present scenario ng may pandemic. Pero siyempre affected din ang business dahil sa crisis natin ngayon,“ Stephen says. (laban lang koya! Laban!)

They are set to launch “Celebs on Canvas” an on-line exhibit of artworks by celebrities who are into painting.  (shumushowbiz!)

“On-going naman palagi yung mga featured artists namin. Pero since we met some collectors from the entertainment industry, we discovered that some of our celebrities are also artists na may mga interesting na mga nagawa. “  Stephen explains. (di lang uma-arte o ma-arte, may pa-arte pa!)

My very own, The Art of FU, will be one of the first featured pieces in the on-line exhibit.  (ayan, naisingit yung akin! Kahit di naman ako masyado celeb!)

“We met MR. FU kasi collector siya. Tapos nakita namin yung mga mismong gawa nya, impressive. Kaya nasa gallery naming ilan sa mga works nya. This time we want to highlight his creativity sa ganito namang medium, kasi known sya sa atin as TV and radio personality,” Stephen says. (grabe yung salitang known ha!)

Celebs on Canvas will premiere via The Republic Art Facebook Page next month. (may red carpet daw! makapag-gown nga!)
