The rise of Mylene Quito

There is truly no limit to what a woman can do and artist Mylene Quito proves this with her second solo exhibit this coming October 2022 at Ayala Malls Manila Bay featuring her “Belle Fleur” series calling for women empowerment. She hopes to inspire women to follow their passion, continue to reinvent themselves, and bloom.

The black backdrop in the Belle Fleur collection symbolizes all the dark times and failures she experienced throughout her art journey.

Quito recalls all the painful storms she went through and reminisce an episode where a critic said she will not make it. Claiming she wasn’t talented enough, and would never succeed without their help — all of which she now feels thankful for as she realized it only made her stronger.

Every painting in the collection are flowers that symbolize the diversity of women – soft, sweet, powerful; all silhouetted with golden linings – symbolic of rebirth and indestructibility.

“No matter what a woman’s flaws and imperfections are, we are uniquely beautiful,” Quito said.

The Lotus is one of her favorite pieces, a testimony of human resilience and unwavering spirit; also a flower often associated with rebirth and enlightenment. Latched in mud, it submerges in the river and blooms sparkling clean in the morning. Similar to life, we are filled with different problems and anxieties but we will always find a way to rise.

From her La Familia exhibit inspired from her childhood roots, Quito pushes for more greatness beyond as she conquers the Philippine art industry.

From one woman in bloom to another, she said, “Once you become a successful woman, remember to raise others. Start a domino effect through your kindness and always remember to stay grounded.”
