The premier cycle café in the country proudly unveils “Base Camp”, a collaborative venture with Tin-aw Art Gallery.
A merging of art and athleticism, “Base Camp” brings together twenty-two (22) young artists to express their views on the life of the athlete, the physical body and movement using their medium of choice. The artists include : Ambie Abaño, Moreen Austria, Renato Barja Jr., Mars Bugaoan, Lennard Buhay, Ian Cadiong, Francis Commeyne, Cian Dayrit, Anton Del Castillo, Gale Encarnacion, Carzen Esprela, Gab Ferrer, Lui Gonzales, Lofranco, Henrielle Pagkaliwangan, Lee Paje, Julio San Jose, Jun-jun Sta. Ana, Nicole Tee, Clairelynn Uy, Eunice Vergara, Jemime Yabes. “Base Camp” is the first of what is hoped to be a series of exhibitions between Maximus and Tin-aw, as the two see a vibrant world that can be expressed both through sport and art.
“More than finishing times or medals, sport allows a person to express his physicality, his grit, his soul in the competitive arena. Yet art is just another way of expressing this aspect of living. With ‘Base Camp’, we want to be known as more than just a café or sports shop. We are about the passion for living, which you can experience on a bicycle, on the trail, and through this show that Tin-aw has curated for us.” says Maximus’ director, Andy Leuterio.
For Dawn Atienza, Director of Tin-aw Art Gallery, "Art is every where. And as such an art gallery is not just within the white walls of its exhibit space, but in the world around." Sport and the Active Lifestyle merges well with Art because it deals with people, their physical bodies as well as the environment we all live in. We are very happy with Maximus X Tin-aw and “Base Camp” is just the first of a series of exhibits in Maximus."
