On January 19, 2024, the UST Museum will host an exhibition entitled “The Laidback paintings”, featuring paintings and photographs of Orestes P. Monzon, MD and Angelito Florendo.
Florendo’s works offer a glimpse of the rural life and landscapes of his hometown. Moreover, Florendo has a reputation of painting the best kois in his town, creating a trend in the art scene.
Monzon is a doctor-art collector who turned into a visual artist who discovered a new window and a realization that medicine and art could offer opportunities for others. His first solo exhibit entitled “A Tiny Seed becomes a Lovely Tree,” which was composed of 70 paintings in celebration of his 70th birthday, likewise launched his career.
The exhibit will run until February 15, 2024.
