Be Inspired at the Art Karnival in SM North Edsa Skygarden

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls” -Pablo Picasso


yours truly at the Art Karnival grand opening last April 21

Art is seen in almost everywhere that we go. It’s in our innate ability to appreciate art when it catches our fancy. Good thing that SM Malls took the initiative to heighten the senses of mall going Filipinos by promoting art that we can all appreciate in our daily hustle and bustle even if we are just passing through SM’s largest mall which is SM City North Edsa where summer is more creative with the ongoing ART KARNIVAL.

If you happen to pass by at the Skygarden of SM North Edsa better take a good look around and you’ll be surprise to see interesting works of art.

Last April 21, 2017 through an invitation by SM Malls, I was able to attend the opening of SM North Edsa Art Karnival. I can say that I was truly blessed to take part in this exciting and worthy event as one of the media partners of SM.

This out-of-the-box concept aims to stir-up a different level of appreciation of modern art.

Each art piece is carefully selected and placed strategically in locations around the Skygarden blending in perfectly with the surrounding areas while providing a striking and refreshing visual sensory experience for the mallgoers.
