My Art Exhibit Featured in UST Varsitarian Issue

A few months ago, my alma matter’s publication the Varsitarian conducted an interview about my exhibit. They have published that interview. I have also collected some pictures from the event from my media supporter which I will post here. I never knew other people would appreciate my art. I am just happy they do. Thanks Mone and Cat. 😉

I guess Architecture is a never ending quest to learn. One who teaches must continue to seek knowledge. This Semester, I will remain your friend. If there are things you want to ask, ask yourself, your friends, and finally me. If we know the answerS (with an s) we will all discover them.
