Freeway's Ang Kiukok Collection Launch

I'm glad that I was once again invited to Freeway Loves Art Ang Kiukok National Artist Collector's Series Launch last October 27, 2009 at The Row, Glorietta 5. This time the collection features the artwork of National Artist Ang Kiukok, a visionary genius.

Freeway presented the full collection in a fashion show. The Brazilian models wore unique hat pieces to complement their Ang Kiukok outfits and their fab make-up was done by VMV Hypoallergenics.

Jocas De Leon, daughter of Mr. Joey De Leon, hosted the event. Art critic Cid Reyes also participated by reading his essay and with Dr. William Chua (a prominent collector) they shared with the audience some facts about Ang Kiukok and his work. Mr. Joey De Leon was also interviewed to share his memorable experiences with the artist and how he became a collector of his paintings.

Lucky guests (including me!) who won the raffle at the end of the program either got a Freeway gift certificate or VMV Hypoallergenics GCs. Ang Kiukok limited edition tote bags were also given away as gifts to all attendees.

Media personalities, loyal patrons, family and friends of Ang Kiukok attended the series launch.

I won a gift certificate!

I haven't claimed my free gift yet, maybe I'll get this Purple Clowns jacket!
