Superhero Sculpture Exhibit by Harold Soriaga at Abreeza Mall (A Father’s Day Event)

| Davao Events, Davao Expo / Exhibits | June 15, 2013

Yesterday, the Davao Portal Team had the opportunity to be with people who are passionate in sculptures — in the event dubbed “Superhero Sculptures by Daddy Harold Soriaga: A Father’s Day Art Exhibit,” held at Abreeza Mall, Davao City. We thought it was timely as this month, we are honoring our fathers — our all-time favorite superheroes — in various ways. Thus, the said event is worth-featuring and deserves a place here on our blog.

During the event, we got the chance to meet the man behind the masterpiece, Mr. Harold Soriaga, the artist himself. In his speech, he said that he really took  time working, preparing for this event (his first exhibit) that he jokingly said he even had no time giving a massage for his wife during the course of the preparation. He also thanked everybody who came, as well as those people who helped him, with special acknowledgement to his sister, Hazel, who also took a big part for the realization of the event. And, in his welcoming gesture, he invited all of the visitors to see his creations (there were 26 items displayed) that he started creating in 2006. When asked how long does it take to finish a single sculpture, “usually, it takes 3 months for me to finish one,” he said.

toy convention 2013 at Gmall in davao city

Who says anime is only for kids? Well, not really! It is for adult as well and the number of people who flocked during the Mindanao Toy Convention is a clear proof to that. Like me, I’m already 26 but I am still a big fan of anime. I remember when I was a kid, I would cry if I could not watch Ghost FighterFushigi Yugi and other amime series on GMA. Those programs were on same schedules / time slots with local news on its rival network and my Dad always wanted to watch the latter. In other words, I only had a chance to watch when my father is not around.

Presented by Davao Graphic Designers Community and Albertino’s Bar

A gathering of Davao City’s graphic designers dubbed as “Davao Art Attack” was held at Albertino’s Bar, Ecoland, Davao City on September 29, 2012. The exhibit aimed at showcasing various masterpieces from different ‘digital artists’ in town.

The said event also featured live art sessions, merchandise diplay, raffle prizes, and (of course) the element that made the night more ecstatic – the live bands, featuring: Glass House for Kristina, Meet Before Deadline, Scarlet Pimmpernel, Jay Locsin Band, and C-Shifter Band.

The said showcase of talents was made possible through the collaborative effort of Davao Graphic Designer Community with Marvin Consuegra and Albertino’s Bar and with the support of some groups in the city, including Nine Tails, Knob, Dreametry, Sick Side, Cubepixels, The Secret Grarden, Piclyf, and more.

The event was indeed a night of learnings and great musical experience!
