Three Pinoy artists have collaborated with Uniqlo Philippines for the Japanese brand's 9th anniversary in the country.
The works of Isabel Santos, Manix Abrera and Bea Policarpio, where they gave their own takes on Filipino identity are featured in the UTmeArtPH x Salamat Pilipinas collection.
According to a social media post, they "explored the Filipino identity in the face of adversity with designs centered around gratitude, courage, and hope."
Isabel Santos' work, "Vendors," showcases the complex and busy markets of Metro Manila, while Manix Abrera's, "Amulet," is a modern take on the Filipino charm.
Finally, Bea Policarpio's is an abstract peice that hopes to show an "inward rush of gratitude." It's called "The Sun It Gently Rises."
The collection, which aims to honor and recognize the passion and creativity of Filipino artists, are available starting today at the Uniqlo Manila Global Flagship Store in Glorietta 5, Makati.
Uniqlo Philippines have also launched the “UTme! Art of the Philippines” collection online which features works from more local artists. — Franchesca Viernes/LA, GMA News
