Over the years, Cebu streets have become more and more vibrant. Walk around, take your time, and you’ll notice art all over. Walls plastered with colorful graffiti, giant murals of fun characters, and smaller wheatpaste pieces on crowded city areas. I’ve always had an interest in street art, but I never was really part of that scene.
This is where the Bart Bros come in. Fortunately, they sat down and explained the culture and history of Cebu street art. Composed of brothers Bart and Yummy, Bart Bros started by sharing their wild imaginations in the streets of Cebu, and have since been invited by various art galleries to exhibit their work. Their works are often seen as brutally painless and darkly cheerful with a tinge lowbrow humor.
In this episode we talk about, what it is like to be an artist in Cebu, the early days of the street art movement, the nuts and bolts of street art, and what exhibiting is like.
