Just recently, Axis Watches held a charity art exhibit entitled “Time Out of Time” at the SM Mall of Asia where works of talented artists Ram Mallari, Buds Convocar and Salvador Ching were featured and were opened for bidding. Each artwork collection of mixed media were incorporated with different designs of Axis watches.
Proceeds of the bidding will be donated to Children’s Hour whose mission is to promote child protection, education, health and nutrition for all children.
Know more about each artist, their artworks and their inspiration in making their beautiful creations as you read along.
Ram Mallari feels happy, humbled and grateful to be able to take part in the exhibit that benefits children. Ram says, “The world is such a big place with so many needs that my little acts of kindness and frankly, my whole life, seem so small.”
Mallari’s Axis artwork is called “Time Voyager”. He is hoping that this piece will help raise more awareness on recycling and its value. Ram wants to inspire people to turn scraps into creative and functional pieces and in the process, help them understand the value of his work and its purpose.
Buds Convocar has always been enthusiastic when it comes to activities that can help those who are in need. He has always willingly participated in events that help those who have less in life. So it was an easy decision for him to take part in the Axis “Time Out of Time” exhibit.
His work is entitled “We All Need More Time”. It is inspired by the importance of time and how we use it. It communicates the need for balance — to focus on the challenges that confront us but still make time for the people we love, especially in celebrating our triumphs.
Salvador “Buddy” J. Ching’s work is entitled “Oras-yon” which is part of the Women of Malolos Series. His work is inspired by the memories of the past and represents the images of our history. Buddy says it is an honor for him to be part of the Axis event, “Nung makita ko yung imbitasyon, hindi ako nag dalawang isip, lalo na may mga tutulungan.”
Axis truly goes beyond just being a timepiece. The Time Out of Time exhibit is a collaboration that truly makes your time count.
The artworks may be seen at the Axis pop-up store on the ground floor of SM Mall of Asia, near National Bookstore.
Axis watches are available in Watch Republic Shops and leading department stores nationwide.
