Editor's Note: Appreciating Art In All Its Forms

Lifestyle Asia’s April 2024 issue of Alpha celebrates art’s ability to nourish the human experience, best exemplified through the creative spirit and thought-provoking works of cover star Maxine Syjuco.

Dear Readers,

April’s focus is Art and Culture, a theme that resonates deeply with me. I’ve been collecting art not just because it’s a solid investment, but also because it brings me joy and connects me to my family’s legacy. Like my mother before me, I intend to pass down this love for art to my two daughters. This month, we’re thrilled to feature Ms. Maxine Syjuco as our cover girl.

Maxine, kind and soft-spoken, shares her journey in art, influenced by her talented parents. Her passion for art and music is both a personal and familial heritage.

We also spotlight Paul Cabral’s latest collection in a runway feature shot at the Goldenberg Mansion in Malacañang. Both the setting and clothes highlight the richness of Philippine culture in a straightforward yet profound way.

April is all about exploring the arts and culture in our lives, as well as recognizing their impact on our identity and heritage. Let’s take this time to appreciate the creativity around us.
