Art Underground, being one of the freshest contemporary art galleries in Metro Manila, Philippines, will represent the works of upcoming contemporary artists Gene Paul Martin and Seifred Guilaran for Art Central 2018 in Hong Kong. ART UNDERGROUND is a platform for contemporary visual art praxis and art projects in fusion with related creative multi-disciplines and movements such as art literature, performance, film, design, fashion, architecture, heritage conservation and music. It fosters art that speaks in a visionary pictorial language that elevates the sub terrain of contemporary art into a consciousness that is more open and accessible in reach of audiences beyond preconceived confines of art. ART UNDERGROUND promotes art that harmonizes the timeless contexts and notions of aesthetics with the thought-provoking, intriguing, and at times disturbing peculiarity of contemporary concerns. It endeavours to meld the classic quality of sublime art with the earthy and the real, manifested in the evolutionary creative output, pursuits, study and discourse of Art Underground’s select roster of artists and guest artists, curators, academics and practitioners. Art Underground started its operations on April of 2014 located at 814 Balagtas St., Barangay Addition Hills, Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila, Philippines. Since then, the gallery has been exhibiting works of select promising artists whose vision align with the gallery to promote contemporary art in Manila. Art Underground has also joined several art fairs like Art in the Park, Art Fair Philippines, Art Kaohsiung 2016, and Art Fair Tokyo 2017 & 2018.
