In celebration of Michael Cacnio's 20 years in brass sculpting, Cacnio does an unusual but fun collaboration with global giant LEGO for an exhibit aptly called INSPIRE.
Think combination of brass sculptures with colored LEGO bricks, this collaboration truly challenges and defies preconceived notion about traditional brass sculpting.With its theme, INSPIRE truly promotes the importance of imagination as it goes out of the box and pushes the artist's playfulness and creativity in its unlikely combination of freeform monochromatic brass and polygonal yet colorful plastic.
Over the years Cacnio's earned accolades from various organizations with his depiction of social realities in his works. Some of his known achievements include being part of the Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) in 2006 and the distinction of being the first Filipino artist to have had his work showcased at the Headquarters of the European Commission in Brussels.
INSPIRE will be featured at THE GALLERY of Greenbelt 5 on Friday, September 16, 2011.
