Art? Paintings? Errr. I’m not interested.
Those are words that we sometimes hear when it comes to art. Even me, sometimes I lose enthusiasm to paintings. Reason? I don’t know how to paint. haha Lame reason. I know.
Then one Saturday afternoon, me and my friend decided to visit one of the Art Museum that is very near our town, the Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo City.
The place is really awesome, it looks so different from the other museums that we have here in the Philippines. You will not look forward for the paintings alone, but also for the structures where the paintings are located. A must visit for every travel junkie like me, who don’t just travel, but also appreciate the things around them such as trees, mountains, air and art. 🙂

A WORLD CLASS MUSEUM
Since the place is really wonderful, we took a lot of photos inside the museum. Let me share with you our pictures, the paintings and the structures. Enjoy!
The Arts and structure.
The following pictures will show you how beautiful the place is and some of the paintings that is resting in this museum. They also have this so called “Forest”, it’s a room of bamboos and some man made springs, inside the room is a little bit darker with just 4 or 6 lamps inside. I wasn’t able to take pictures because it was dark inside. When I entered the room it feels like I teleported from Pinto Art to Black Forest in Belgium. haha. My imagination always always works.
Us and the art.
Not to exaggerate, but I really think that every corner of this place is really photogenic on its own. So we grabbed the chance to take a lot of pictures as we can, just like everybody does.
Very nice and beautiful place. A place to unwind and relax, plus it is very near the city. So calling all the travel junkies, visit this place, it was worth the pay and time.
This place is a 1 hectare museum, so if you’re planning to visit and you think that you might get tired going around inside, don’t worry, they have an in-house resto where you can eat to relax and quench your thirst.
Life is like a blank canvass, it will remain blank unless you put color in it.
So be free and don’t limit yourself too much. Make the world your playground, we are here to live the life we’ve imagined. The limit is our imagination, so remember to color your canvass beautifully.
