So happy that FAM gets a season two! As the art world is getting more appreciation from the world, here I am, still sharing artists that are now FAM! This month’s artist is an artist close to me. His name is Sam. Are you ready to get to know him?
FAM: Now on its 2nd Season!
On this day, last year, I started this blog series. It originally was to feature local artists that the world needs to know. I believe in their talents and in their skills. The series aims to inspire enthusiasts and fellow artists to continue doing art and of course, to pass on the passion.
I never thought that the series itself would survive. It may sound pessimistic but that’s the truth. People who read the previous posts have shared their thoughts and feelings about the featured artist. Both the featured artists and I really feel grateful for all of you.
So, this series continues to live on every month in the hopes of inspiring more and igniting everyone not to turn their backs on art itself.
Without further ado, let’s meet the first featured artist for the second season!
Featured Artist for the Month: Stephen Manalo
The first featured artist for the second season is someone really close to me. He’s someone who has been in my life and my journey in getting to know art particularly calligraphy. Life would have been a lot different if he was not around. Without further ado, meet Stephen Manalo. He is August’s featured artist!
This time last year, I featured a friend whose birthday is also this August. Same with Sam, his name day is this August as well.
