LovEm HeARTS!♥

by - February 12, 2016

Valentine's Day is the day where everyone feels a roller coaster of emotions and a day wherein people have a lot of names for it...

It's a day for LOVE, Happy Single awareness day, a day that some people dread, a day that anywhere or everywhere you look there are bouquet of flowers and sweet nothings. 

But to be honest, for me, Valentine's Day is a day not only for couples. It's a day to celebrate the people you love. Hearts day can be with you Mom, grandparents, brother, sister or even your best friends! :) Love is everywhere!

This Valentine's weekend, let your never-ending love story begin at Ayala Malls. With fun activities for the young and the young-at-heart (that's me! Hahaha!), lovers and friends, artists and muses, you will surely find something to love at Ayala Malls.

At the launch... loved the setup of the table so much!

Yum! ^_^ Happy tummy!

"Love is not only a feeling, it is also art." - Honore de Balzac

Ayala Malls, an avid supporter of the arts and propagator of culture, gathers the most talented, young artists in the country and provides for them a canvas on which they can fully express their love for life and their passions.

Hence, starting this February 14, Ayala Malls stages an awe-inspiring exhibit of art installations - the HeART series. All these artistic masterpieces - from evocative to the quirky - will tickle the human imagination. Discover the curious and creative artwork as you leisurely take a stroll around your favorite Ayala Mall.

Truly, what a great way to spend Valentine's day. I love anything artsy, so spotting artworks at the mall will be a unique and fun experience. :) I wouldn't want to spend it any other way!

All Ayala Malls will have different exhibits of art installations...

In Glorietta, find the beautiful works of artist Mercedes Olondriz and renowned crafter and pattern designer Alessandra Lanot. Amy Francisco-Cabral and The Googly-Gooeys will be beautifying the spaces of Market! Market! and Serendra, respectively.

Though more known as a couturier, designer Francis Libiran is also an artist nonetheless and his romantic interpretations will be showcased in Greenbelt.

Filipino-American graffiti artist Dee Jae Pa'este creates an artwork reflecting a "mixture of old world aesthetics and new world consciousness in Bonifacio High Street.

In Alabang Town Center, Bambi Manosa and Kids4Kids, Sam Galvez-Lorenzo of Village Art Gallery, and Patrick Cabral of Bucketfeet will display their creative whims at the live art presentation.

Young artists - Kris Abrigo, Egg Fiasco and Seiko - proudly share their more contemporary touches in Trinoma, while UP Town Center allows the graffiti-inspired art of Drone takes center stage.

EXL D, another wildly talented young artist, paints the spaces of Fairview Terraces with colorful imaginings of everyday life, taking inspiration from pop-culture.

At the Marquee Mall in Pampanga, Marcushiro and Bru of Electrolychee will amaze the public with their colorful vector art and hand-drawn imagery. Renowned young artist Farley Del Rosario's amusing works, on the other hand, will be on display in Harbor Point Mall.

Down south in Soledad, Serin and The District Imus, artists Tripp 63, Chill, BLIC, and Fine Arts students of Adventist University of the Philippines will bring a thriving street vibe through colorful, graffiti-inspired artwork.

Catch community-based artists for the Vismin Malls. At Abreeza Mall, visual art students from the University of Mindanao explore the "Lov'em" theme in different media.

Ayala Team + the young artists for LovEmHeARTs :)

No matter which Ayala Mall you will be at, you can discover and relish the creative whims inspired by love this February 14!

Aside from that, you and your date can also enjoy sweet treats from LOVE BITES at Greenbelt 3 Park! I remember this is where my then-boyfriend-now-husband used to date! Aww memories!

One of the booths that will be there is POUF! They make super adorable cotton candy, so be sure to drop by and have a heart shaped made! ;)

Love is also all about bringing people together, and this is why Ayala Malls is proud to launch products and services that bring connectivity and power at the tip of your fingers.

  1. Isn't it amazing at how a simple heart symbol brings smile to our faces? What more if its beautiful art pieces such as those in your photos? I was at Fairview Terraces the other day and yes, I've seen the HeART in their activity center. If only I had no other business there, I would love to just sit in that area and really feel Valentine's day.
