Waterfront township development Mandani Bay welcomes 2021 with a celebration of art and culture as it hosts Creativity and World-class Vision, a painting exhibition by Cebu’s acclaimed abstract painter, Dennis “Sio” Montera.
Exclusively commissioned to do the paintings of Mandani Bay Suites, the development’s first two towers, Sio highlights in his exhibit the Mandani Bay collection which will be on display at the Mandani Bay Show Gallery from January 14 to January 31, 2021.
The pieces, which went through an in-depth screening and approval process, are also featured in Mandani Bay’s 2021 calendar as a testament of Cebuano artist’s competence and a celebration of world-class vision and creativity.
Faith, mortality, distress, isolation, leadership, family, travel, adaptation, identity, changing social strata, and overall perseverance are among the abstract concepts of life that motivated Sio Montera in the expression of his art. These are all evidenced on the acuity, richness and relevance of the notions in the varied abstract pieces in the collection. For Sio, it is such a liberating experience to productively finish the pieces amidst the generally felt pandemic scare, anxiety and uncertainty.
Creativity and world-class vision, as an art exhibition, is Sio’s perspective in seeing with hope and positivity the other facet of one’s continued existence in today’s world. Aside from the Mandani Bay collection, Sio also displayed some of his personal works available for public display and selling.
