“Sharing My Works with other People”. 

Jose Ehric Egualada of Boracay Island says Art in my region is extremely popular. Even though I live by the beaches of Boracay, I have been hoping that my art will be able to reach even the outskirts of Manila. My art pieces recreate a society centred with faith, nature and people. It is an honour and privilege to share my works with other people. Thanks to I can make these things possible. 

“Physically seeing the artwork in real life is and should be a different experience than seeing a representation online, but considering the benefits, it’s a very good alternative for perusing and buying such,” says Stegeman. I’m very happy that art fairs have become increasingly popular; it shows that art is important to Filipinos. But even in those fairs, they often showcase the more established artist whose artworks are quite inaccessible to many because of their places,” he added. 

“ takes away those boundaries by showcasing a whole lot more artists and offer prices for every Juan. And if an original piece of art is still inaccessible because of the price we also offer prints via our partner, No Blank Walls; a less expensive way of getting beautiful art into your home office and personal space.”

Developed by internet solutions company Chanz Global, currently features curated contemporary artworks such as painting drawings and mixed media-sculptures and photographs will be available too in the coming months.
