UP Vargas Museum opens Anima: A Picturebook in Space on January 15, Friday, 4pm, at the 3F Galleries.

Anima: A Picturebook in Space is an exhibition that proposes an alternative approach to the medium of book illustration. By combining illustrations as paintings and drawings, with selected objects of personal significance and materials from the Vargas Collection, Bumatay creates an installation of a fantastical children’s “picturebook” on the three-dimensional space of the museum. Objects reminiscent of childhood play and personal fantasies are built in a suggestive state of animation, piquing the imagination and enabling the viewer to construe the stories behind every clue seen in the space.

The exhibit runs until January 29.

Sergio Bumatay III (b. 1979) received his Bachelor of Fine Arts major in Advertising Arts at the University of Santo Tomas in 2000 and is currently doing his Master’s at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts. He is a member of INK (Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan), the Philippines’ first organization of illustrators. Bumatay is a children’s book illustrator, book designer, and painter whose works have garnered local and international awards in Japan (2008), South Korea (2012) and Sweden (2013).
