Gateway Gallery Presents Inksight One Man Exhibit This March 15-25
Continue to deepen one’s art appreciation at this yet another engaging exhibition entitled Inksight on March 15, 6 p.m. at Gateway Gallery in Quezon City. It is the second solo show of artist Joseph Espino who, in this latest outing, “drew” from his subconscious to come up with a body of work that is both fresh and distinct.
Espino’s artworks, drawings, and sculptures, manifest human conditions and feelings that go in a surrealist form and attitude.

Mostly self-taught, as he did not have the chance to study art formally, Espino has recently retired from his graphic design job. Now with more time, he spends it by experimenting and creating new works as he redirects his career as a full-time fine artist.
