We went for a hunt to find a secluded art studio along the streets of Quezon city. From outside it looked like a warehouse that no one will ever suspect of magic happening inside.
The moment we entered a wide-spaced lot, I was immediately elated with the metal sculptures scattered everywhere. I had to see each bit of it. The best part was I haven’t even entered the actual gallery yet.
After enjoying the experience, I went in and was welcomed by the artist himself. He was working on a new piece of brass sculpture in a limestone. You can instantly sense he is the shy and humble type. It was a fantastic experience to be up close and personal with the one and only, Michael Cacnio. He indulged us for a little talk about his artistry while we enjoyed roaming around the studio talking with his very accommodating wife.
At the end of the visit, I felt inspired. Sculpting is one of the facets of art that I am truly frustrated to try. I admire people who can do it effortlessly; specially someone of Cacnio’s caliber. Many have copied his style but nothing beats the original brass master.
