Sugid Alampat debuted GAMA: Youth, Diversity, and Expression, a collection of paintings representing the very life, inspiration, and intellection of artists—an exhibition that screams, “Art is not complicated!”
Under the supervision of CTU academic Grace Gay Cabellon, Sugid Alampat, whose name is derived from two Sinugbu-anu’ng Binisaya words—“sugid” or storytelling and “alampat” or art—believes that storytelling isn’t only limited to the use of words; creative storytelling can also be through hues and strokes.
Its founder, Kean Larrazabal, a twenty-one-year old icon who hailed from the City of Iligan, Lanao del Norte, had had his work featured by various personalities and companies including PENTEL Singapore and TITUS Pen. Recently, his commissioned painting became a book cover for Reading of the Regions by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.
In a nutshell, the group encourages the youth to lean toward Arts as a form of self-expression. It aims to give opportunities to celebrate what one values or contemplate perspectives different from one’s own in a non-confrontational way.
