If enthusiasm and passion were what it took to appreciate art, the GIGI LIM and son IAN would never face a blank wall.
The mother and son team collects Philippine Asian art not for investment but for sheer love and passion. This is in tribute to the rich talent that allows its creators immortality through their art, giving us a different view of their world.
The advocacy of sharing through reproduction of fashion and home accessories came about because of an accidental realization. Many appreciate Filipino art but sadly could not afford to take home and hang the artworks on their walls. Art collection had become an activity only few could indulge in. Thus motivated, GIGI, a graduate of Ateneo De Manila University with a degree in Economics, and IAN, a product of the Industrial Design Program of the De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde, got their collective minds together to democratize art and make it available to all people of different walks of life.
They achieved this by securing the rights from the artist to reproduce their works on fashion and home accessories.
This is done so the present and the future generation will be able to appreciate Filipino Art and culture regardless of background.
Walls Gallery is blessed with the participation of artists, both established and new, hobbyists and students who are as enthusiastic and passionate about their creations. This is the legacy that GIGI and IAN want to leave behind: that every employee, student, and collector can share the love of Art.
These pages pays tribute to the artists who have unselfishly and graciously given permission in support of Walls Gallery’s advocacy: to share their works and showcase to the world the rich culture and talent we have as Filipino.
