To set the tone for the collective mood for 2022 and beyond, BGC, through the help of the Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc. (BAFI), has commissioned artists to create seven additional murals on the walls of the city.

BAFI is a non-stock, non-profit organization that champions the arts and sciences and has spearheaded the likes of The Mind Museum, the BGC Arts Center for the performing arts, Art BGC Public Art, and Mind S-Cool.

With the theme “Rolling Out a Better World,” these murals depict a society where everyone is interconnected through empathy and compassion. These new murals were painted by Glendford Lumbao, Kankan Ramos, Patmai, Zoe Rosal, Deafeye Studio, Elie Quial, and Woman Create. These were all finished by the end of 2021.

BGC continued to roll out “better world” murals in collaboration with partners who believe in the power of public art to elevate community life.

Last year, the first ever mural, “What’s Your Culture?” by Glendford Lumbao, was made possible with the support of Yamaha Motor Philippines. It utilized the concept of “weaving” to highlight how different narratives are intertwined together making it all part of a bigger picture.

In line with the theme of moving forward for a better tomorrow, the mural shows the Pinoy concept of “kapit-bisig.” This is to visualize how everyone in the community, despite their different culture, could be of service to one another.

Apart from the first mural supported by Yamaha Motors, Globe Telecom supported other murals namely Atin ang Love for All” by Patmai, “Atin ang Araw” by Zoe Rosal, and “Atin ang Bawat Sandali” by Deafeye Studio as “Rolling out a Better World” which also joyfully coincided with Globe Telecom’s ongoing campaign, “Atin ang Mundo” (“The World is Ours”).

On the other hand, “The Land We Walk On” by Elie Quial and “Nurturing Ubuntu” by Woman Create were sponsored by Boysen. A long time collaborator with ArtBGC, the company provided all the paints for the new murals.

Everyone visiting, living, and working in BGC will see these “old” spaces in new light because of the new murals with various art works, designs, and animations in mobile devices via augmented reality.
