This trip is enjoyed riding the famous Bambike. Itineraries include the following places.
Bonifacio High Street
Anjo Bolarda (Pangako)
The mural is called “Pangako” and was done by a world-renowned Pinoy artist by the name of Anjo Bolarda. It shows his distinct style, which he calls “Sukiyaki Western” – a fusion of Western steet and Japanese design. Some of Anjo Bolarda’s favorite subjects are animals, mythology and women.
Egg Fiasco (Pilandok)
Another Filipino street artist named Egg Fiasco created the mural. It is titled “Pilandok” which means the Philippine Mouse Deer. He refers to his style as neo graffiti or post-graffiti. Another signature element of his art refers to his name.
Nate Frizzell (We Are What We Pretend To Be)
A lot of comparisons have been made to Calvin and Hobbes, but the artist has yet to confirm this. This mural features Nate’s signature style. He likes to dabble with duality, so he compares humans and animals.
AKA Corleone (Pop Art)
The huge splash of colours created by a Portuguese artist who goes by the name AKA Corleone, which was inspired by the Godfather movies. His style is very playful and his colors are rich and vibrant. If you look up his work online you will see that its all very bright and optimistic, and you can see them decorating the walls of mostly depressed areas. In this way, he will somehow bring colours and hope to gloomy places.
One Global Place
This mural is one of the biggest ones created furing the Art Tour BGC Mural Festival. The mural was made by a collaboration of artists based in Brooklyn, New York, who call themselves Faille. They called the mural “Wonderland”, and it is part of Faille’s “Wonderland” collection of street art which can be seen in different cities all over the world.
Cyrcle (Between the Lines)
Cyrcle is a duo from California. The colour of the stripes is actually called “lunar green”. If you look up Cyrcle’s other works, you’ll notice that they like to use the same color over and over again. That is because they intend for each mural to be a part of a larger collection that can be found all over the world.
Bonifacio High Street
Nate Frizzell (We Are What We Pretend To Be – Bear-ly There)
The mural is a part of Nate Frizzell.s “We Are What We Pretend To Be” theme and it’s actually one of the four that he has done here at BGC. The mural depicts the same theme of having an “inner animal” or “inner beast”.
Nate Frizzell (We Are What We Pretend To Be – Boy on top of Wall)
Trivia: he has done solo shows and his Art has been displayed in places like London, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Miami, so he’s very prolific in the art scene around the world. He enjoyed doing murals in BGC so much that he has done more than one.
Nate Frizzell (We Are What We Pretend To Be – Crows)
The 4th one of Nate Frizzell’s murals depicts a lone crow.
