Hi, I'm Arlo.
I am a Filipino Architect and emerging Artist based in Basel.
Last week I got the confirmation from the Curatorial Board of Florence Biennale that I am accepted to participate in the upcoming major contemporary arts and design exhibition XIV Florence Biennale 2023.
This is one of the major leaps I have been waiting to finally have, a chance to show my ATTENTION Collection to a worldwide audience in a respected Art Exhibition in the arts capital of Italy, Florence.
I am planning to show three pieces of art— A Chair Art, and two pieces of 100x 120 cm of Acrylic painting on a canvas board. I suggest that before you decide to participate in this crowdfunding, please visit my website page to see the collection I will be showing for the Biennale. It's at https://www.artistarlo.com/attentioncollection .
The Florence Biennale's theme is "I AM YOU", and I believe that my current collection is fully aligned with it. I created this collection hoping that people can find themselves in my paintings and also recognize the value and power of attention, individually and collectively.
You can also have a look at the exposition's website at https://www.florencebiennale.org/
For your additional information, this GoFundMe Fundraiser will be running until end of June 2023. But, since I'm planning to avail the installment payments, I will be submitting the first 25% of the total fees by end of April, another 25% by end of May and the remaining 50% by end of June.
I strongly believe that this is the perfect time to grab this once in a lifetime opportunity to join a Biennale. It is not all the time the theme fits one's collection topic, so I hope you can support me on this journey of creating a strong foundation for my art career alongside representing my current country Switzerland and my home country The Philippines.
In addition, I am also going to sell parts of my collection that are currently exhibited at a gallery in Basel at a lower price from May 2023. Should you be interested in that, please feel free to reach out to me at [email redacted] .
I appreciate your support and generosity on my way to introducing myself and my art to a worldwide audience.
I would also love it if we stay in touch. You can also follow me @art.ist.arlo in Instagram.
Thank you once again.
Arlo Jake Lagmay
