Following his Bart Simpson-inspired Elevate sculpture, Louis De Guzman is now gearing up for an exhibition in Manila, Philippines. The Chicago-based visual artist will debut a new range of paintings at Secret Fresh Gallery for the presentation entitled “In Between The Lines.” For the pieces in the show, De Guzman reimagines “the grey area between the subject matter, colors, and shapes that are signature to his work,” said the artist in a statement.
The Filipino creative is widely-recognized for gathering abstract shapes to create an intricate composition in his paintings. “Serving as a visual metaphor for art consuming De Guzman’s life, and the complexities involved with becoming a full-time artist, In Between The Lines is intended to evoke emotions of self-awareness and confidence in oneself,” he added.
The exhibition will be open to the public starting March 31. The show marks the artist’s first international debut. Stay tuned for details and head over to De Guzman’s website to view more projects.

The journey is the best part. Two years ago, we were at @ncngchicago, a barbershop on Chicago Ave. showcasing and sharing some pieces with our family and friends for the first time. This year we go international and bring the entire team with us. NEVER give up on the things that matter the most to you // Humble beginnings at all times. See you soon Manila – Link in bio ✌?
