Brew Your Best Year by The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® is kicking off 2016 with the launch of a three-part series of events that will hit big cities in the country: Metro Manila, Cebu and Davao.
The theme of the series will be Create: Brew Your Best Masterpiece in which community members will get to unleash their inner creativity and exercise their imagination by learning about Street Art – a booming platform for individuality and self-expression- and then applying what they’ve learned by being a part of the team who will create The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®’s very first public mural.
The first leg of the series conducted by street artists BEK Graffiti and Janot happened last February 13, 2016 in the South’s Queen City, Cebu. The street art mural can now be seen at the Escario Wall, Cebu City.
For Davao City, the event is happening on February 27, 2016 in what is called the “creative and entertainment hub of Davao”, Matina Town Square. Some of the most well-known streets artists will showcase their talents and share personal stories behind the pursuit of their passion for street art. They are Troy Bascon – one of the pioneering graffiti artists in Davao with his iconic style of using cans and intricate graffiti letters, Kim Vale – a fine arts graduate with a background of painting that eventually led him to his love of using stencils in his creations, Ghamar Kanda – knowledgeable in spray cans and industrial paints for his street art and is popular for his works using imagery such as fish with a lobster claw, and Franco – one of the local street artists whose work you can find in every corner of the city and an expert in using wheat paste as his main medium.
The event is a half-day workshop from 1:00-5:00pm. Participants will get to learn about the history and basics of street art and graffiti. After which, participants are encouraged to collaborate together to design a street art mural in one of the walls in Matina Town Square.
