Strange shapes and shades

Raul Lebajo introduces a menagerie of otherworldly creatures and mystical realms in the solo exhibition, “Shades of Green,” on view at the Ayala Museum Annex from 6 to 19 December. On the left is his work, “After the Rain.”

ArtistSpace presents “Shades of Green,” a solo exhibition of visual artist Raul H. Lebajo.

An exhibition one year in the making, the highly anticipated show features a fresh view into the phantasmagoria and fantastic worlds fashioned by the prolific mind and dynamic brushwork of one of the most respected masters of his generation.

“Angel of the South” (2018, acrylic on canvas).

Drawing inspiration from organic forms that embellish both his artistic career and his life beyond the canvas, Lebajo grants his viewers a glimpse of otherworldly creatures and mystical realms in his latest offering.

“Portrait in the Woods” (2018, acrylic on canvas).

He introduces a secret menagerie of reinvented beings, proving the abundance of his passion for paint and color and the boundlessness of his art. Exuberance pour out of his vibrant hues as his new creations germinate with efflorescence and the promise of existence sprightlier than ours.

“Shades of Green” is on view until 19 December at ArtistSpace, located at the Ayala Museum Annex in Makati City. It is open from Mondays to Sundays, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission is free.
