The 29th One-Man Show of Edwin Wilwayco is mentioned at Pepper Teehankee's article at the Philippine Star:
Edwin Wilwayco held his latest one-man-show titled Fractals at Altro Mondo, Greenbelt 5 in Makati City. The last show he had in the Philippines was in 2012. Prior to his Fractals exhibit in Makati, he had shows in Singapore and the US.
Wilwayco’s friends and family were in attendance to see the canvases bursting with colors that the artist is known for. The show was called Fractals because Wilwayco thought that there was more to abstract art than just dragging and sloshing paint all over a canvas. “I like the idea of finding an endless repetition of fractal units that seem ‘not repetitive.’ Fractals comes from ‘fractured’ or ‘irregular’ patterns that I observe in nature,” he explains.
Wilwayco graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of the Philippines and took further studies at West Surrey College of Art and Design in England as a British Council scholar for painting.
I hope it won’t take another three years before this talented artist has another show in Manila
