Michael Cacnio and LEGO Join to “INSPIRE”

Michael Cacnio and LEGO collaborate to “INSPIRE - Celebrating twenty auspicious years of artistic talent as a brass sculptor, Michael Cacnio collaborates with the much-acclaimed global brand LEGO in an exhibit entitled INSPIRE that opens on September 16, 2011, at THE GALLERY of Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City. 

In INSPIRE, Cacnio recreates his trademark brass sculptures with the combination of LEGO bricks that colored his childhood days while keeping the rustic and naturalistic air that animates his works.   The collaboration is an unlikely marriage of freeform monochromatic brass and polygonal colorful plastic, challenging the norm and defying preconceived notions about beauty. 

The INSPIRE exhibit advocates the importance of imagination, creativity and knowledge.  It encourages one to step out from the realm of familiarity and rouses the imagination with the attitude of playfulness and boldness in Cacnio’s works. 

The exhibit may be viewed until September 29, 2011.

Cacnio steadily built his reputation for passionate and consistent depictions of social realities in his art. His skill in creating provocative brass spectacles out of real-life quotidian scenes has earned him accolades from a host of prestigious organizations over the years.

His many achievements include a 2006 Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) Award, sold-out exhibits in the international art market, and the rare distinction of being the first Filipino artist ever to showcase his work at the Headquarters of the European Commission at the Berlaymont Building in Brussels. All his accomplishments have thus earned him a venerable slot in the pantheons of Philippine sculpture.

Silent epidemic spreads: 3 out of 5 Filipinos suffer from Vit-D deficiency. Are you one of them? An expert in the field of occupational medicine has revealed that an increasing number of office workers in Metro Manila are becoming vitamin D-deficient because of their lifestyle habits.

Cases of vitamin D deficiency in the country are increasing due to lifestyle that most of us have. Vitamin D is produced naturally through adequate sun exposure and given that most office workers are not exposed to as much sunlight as they need to be, they face a much pronounced risk of suffering from the condition.
