Geovanni Abing, represented by Talimbaw Art Gallery, bagged the grand prize in this year’s Don Papa Rum art competition.
Don Papa Rum said Abing’s “Timeless Landscape,” a stunning 3x5 collage and acrylic on canvas with an archival coating, perfectly captured this year’s theme “Flora and Fauna of Sugarlandia.”
“My artwork portrays Sugarlandia as a magical place pulsating with life and floating over a sea of clouds. A place that governs mankind,” explained Abing.
Aside from getting his artwork reprinted on the local rum brand’s special edition canisters which will be sold in limited quantities worldwide, Abing will also enjoy a monthlong artistic sojourn in Barcelona, inclusive of airfare, accommodations, and allowance from the Bleeding Heart Rum Company.
Don Papa has also recognized two distinct artists: Joseph Ingking who won both People’s Choice and Artistic Merit Awards with his “Flora Fauna de Sugarlandia” theme, receiving P10,000 and P50,000, respectively for each category. Also recognized for his work “Eden” was Daryl Feryl, who bagged the first-ever Masskara Award with a take-home prize of P25,000, for capturing the essence of Don Papa Masskara.
