Hi Nomad, how did you spend your weekend?
We know that everyone’s busy with school or their day jobs and often forget to take a break. Stress and frustration commonly eat us up. We need to take a breather from time to time. What do you do to refresh, reenergize and inspire yourselves for another day?
We figured since one of the most overrated pleasures in life is art, we decided to head out to Antipolo and visit the Pinto Art Museum. And, here’s our experience:
From Manila, it’s not that hard to get to Pinto. We geared up early morning with full stomachs ready to destress the day away. It took us an hour and a half to get there. We were in for a surprise.
A museum is a venue that’s great to go solo, with your family, friends or even that special someone.
Pinto has a number of galleries. From the paintings to the installations, you will notice a variety of styles from the different artists they were featuring.
Going through the galleries, you have to stop and let the art sink in. Everyone looks at things differently, from their own perspective.
The way you see things depends on how much you’ve been exposed to the world.
We tend to adapt and change from the places we’ve been to and the experiences we’ve had.
Your life is like a piece of art. From every stroke to every painting — you shouldn’t be afraid to wander and get lost in everything around you.
So Nomad, what are you drawn to?
We’d like to leave you with Keb Cerda’s “I wonder what went wrong with Her to be covered with Cheese” — for us this depicts how overwhelming social media can get.
