Xian Lim paintings at Art Fair Philippines 2016
Actor Xian Lim is a man of many talents. He can play a lot of musical instruments like the piano, saxophone, guitar and trombone. He is also a singer-composer, with some of his original songs featured in his past albums and teleseryes.
Lately, people are starting to discover that Xian is also a gifted painter.
Xian is currently exhibiting his works at Art Fair Philippines 2016 which runs from February 18 to 21 at The Link Carpark in Makati. Heart Evangelista-Escudero joins Xian and hundreds of contemporary artists from 40 participating galleries, including some from Japan, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
The versatile actor is glad to be part of the biggest art event in the country. With a massive number of artworks on display, Art Fair Philippines 2016 is a grand spectacle to behold for any art lover out there.
It’s not the first time that Xian has participated in an art exhibit. Last year, he was featured in an exhibit at Ysobel Art Gallery titled “Pretty Odd”, with 13 other contemporary artists.
In November last year, he also took part in “LUNA”, an art group show of various artists and students. He was visited by love team partner Kim Chiu at the LUNA exhibit and was visibly happy to have her as his “special guest”.
Xian was also one of three artists who hand-painted a Rimowa luxury luggage piece, which was auctioned off in September, 2015.
The multi-faceted artist said in a recent interview with Bandila on February 18 that he has been painting since high school. But it’s only now that he decided to release his works.
Xian was beaming as he showed his paintings exhibited at the Art Fair Philippines 2016 like, “Suspension of Disbelief” and “Time Will Tell”, which were reportedly sold out already. He shared photos of his paintings on social media, where a lot of his followers had nothing but praises for his newest artworks.
The visual artist that is Xian seems to have a rosy future ahead of him. His works will be featured at the YOD Kogure exhibit in Japan this coming August and December 2016, according to Star Cinema.
When and if Xian gets tired of showbiz, we know what career path he’ll take. But it seems, he is equally passionate with painting as he is with acting. Bursting with so much talent, no one can stop Xian from pursuing his passions all at the same time.
