Murals by artists who are also entrepreneurs (they have shops in UP Town Center too!). The first one is by Panch Alvarez of Linya Linya, while the second one is by Danika Navarro of Nava.

Most of these murals are found at Urban Turf, the home of the new Hey Kessy shop! There, you’ll also find homegrown and independent brands such as Chocolate Kiss, Friuli, Renegade Folk, Nava, and Rodick’s, and Hey Kessy. UP Town Center tapped local artists like Robert Alejandro/Papemelroti, Danika Navarro/Nava, and Panch Alvarez/Linya-Linya to work on these amazing murals.

Aside from these murals, the Ayala Malls have also commissioned artists to make Heart Murals during the month of hearts! Don’t you just love them?

These painted creations prove that Filipinos are truly talented, and people don’t need to go to a museum to see something inspiring.

Where else have you seen creative and accessible works that inspire you to make art? Share your discoveries below!
