Head still spinning after the opening last night at the Yuchengco Museum. Truly enjoyed the glorious space that contained my ultra-violet light-reactive paintings. Don't miss it! It shall run until the 20th of April this year.
Below are a series of photographs taken by brother Ricky during the opening night. I've also included photos taken in Sydney by Mario Aldeguer.
