Metrobank Foundation names MADE winners

By Hananeel Bordey

Metrobank Foundation Inc. named this year’s winners and new members on the roster of Metrobank Arts and Design Excellence (MADE), now on its 33rd year, held last September 21 at the Le Pavillion, Metropolitan Park, Pasay City.

This year’s MADE carried the theme “IMAGINE” where Filipino painters and sculptors were challenged to root their creative works on the very seedbed of their artistic genius, which is the human imagination.

MBFI believes that as artists, they hold the power to imagine things anew. Through MADE, they are empowered to showcase and render their creative side to become true works of art.

“The theme affirms our advocacy to empower artists across the country to create new worlds and alternative realities rooted in every seedbed of creative genius: the human imagination,” MBFI president Aniceto Sobrepeña said.

“But more than that, it is a call to action. It poses a challenge to every Filipino far and wide to use the power of their artistic judgment to bring color to our nation” he said.

The grand winner for the Sculpture Recognition Program is a Bacolod City-based sculptor Moreen Joy Austria for her masterpiece entitled “Pagtataguyod” that is made of stainless steel and was inspired by the closeness and warmth of Filipino families.

Abdulmari “Toym” Imao, Jr. was awarded with a special citation for his sculpture entitled “Monument for the Pursuit of Happiness” which features the growth and blossoming of an individual depicted by different family milestones that is shown from every side of the work.

The board of judges was chaired by architect and glass sculptor Ramon Orlina, joined by multi-awarded sculptor Juan Sajid Imao; renowned art critic and author of more than 40 art books Cid Reyes; internationally-acclaimed sculptor Daniel Dela Cruz; sculptor, art teacher, and Art Informal Galleries co-founder Salvador “Joel” Alonday; and the country’s pioneer in art installation Luis “Junyee” Yee, Jr.

For the Painting Recognition Program, Paul John Cabanalan and Marvin Quizon were recognized as the Grand Awardees under the categories of Oil/Acrylic on Canvas and Watermedia on Paper, respectively.

Paul John Cabanalan’s art piece entitled “Genesis” portrayed chaos and disorder through a mix of elements like human illustrations of varying emotions and sizes, city buildings, and some component of nature.

On the other hand, Marvin Quizon used an image of a lifeless bird with flowers and branches growing from it as his illustration in his award-winning painting which symbolises that there is a life that comes after death and a symbol for new beginnings and opportunities that may open.

Menwhile, Caviteño artist Jett Stanley Osian received the Special Citation for his artwork entitled “Tell Lie Vision.”

The masterpiece under the oil and acrylic on Canvas Category rendered monochromatic television sets watched with awe by onlookers whose backs are turned to the viewers which depicts questionable information being fed by the media as well as the humanity’s clamor for social truth.

The board of judges was chaired by one of the country’s leading advertising art director and visual artist, Lydia Velasco.

Members included award-winning visual artist Emmanuel “Manny” Garibay; contemporary visual artist Ferdinand Montemayor; visual artist and West Gallery owner Soler Santos; and Ateneo Art Gallery curator and Ateneo De Manila University Fine arts Department lecturer Ma. Victoria “Boots” Herrera.

The awarding was graced by the Guests of Honor Australian Ambassador Amanda Gorely and Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero. Leading the presentation are Metrobank Foundation, Inc. (MBFI) president Aniceto Sobrepeña, MBFI trustee Fabian Dee, MBFI corporate secretary Anjanete Dy Buncio, Federal Land, Inc. president Pascual Garcia, and Metrobank Vice Chairman Francis Sebastian.

Grand awardees for both Painting and Sculpture Recognition Programs received a financial incentive of P500,000 plus a “Mula” glass trophy designed by sculptor and past MADE awardee Noell El Farrol.

Recipients of the Special Citation for Painting and Sculpture Recognition Programs received financial incentive of P30,000 and P50,000, respectively, and a plaque.

They automatically become a part of the MADE-Network of Winners (MADE-NOW), the alumni organization of MADE awardees, leading pay-it-forward projects for the marginalized sectors.
