"The cool breeze of Antipolo greets it visitors and citizens alike with a feeling associated with comfort. The scenery, mostly covered with trees, old and green, shares this city with all the amenities of city living.
This city which has seen change over the years flourishes and thrives with most of its old customs and traditions intact. Antipolo's road which were then populated with pedestrians and cattle are now infested by buzzing tricycles; a primary mode of transporation and livelihood within this city embraced by the hills. Coincidentally, it shares a trait with the patron saint, Nuestra Senora Dela Paz y Buenviaje, whose name roughly translates to Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage. Amidst the daily hustle and buste of the Antipolonians going about their daily tasks, it is still quite common to see certain trademarks that were attributed to this place. From the suman and kasoy stalls to the fancy coffee shops and big fast food chains, this place has seen change and welcomed it while retaining its old, laid back, rural city vibe in a rapidly growing urban setting."
And it is in this spirit of change, acceptance and identity that made four generations of Antipolo based artists conceptualize and materialize this show entitled "Henerasyon." With participating artists from Salingpusa, Saling Kuting and Sangviaje, the artists contributed their own thoughts, views and opinions which are more often influenced bu this idyllic yet contemporary place that each one calls home."
I can practically spend a full day here just enjoying the lovely scenery or meet with friends over catered food by Bizu Patisserie. While going around I noticed that there were secret paths leading to a more romantic cottage with chairs and daybed. Truly, there's just more to see and that's what make each visit exciting.
