Sports and Athletes interpreted through Visual Arts at the Maximus Athlete Shop Cafe

There’s this one multisport shop that always amazes me everytime I set foot in it. Apart from it’s jaw-dropping gears for sale, and its cafe’s truly delish food and coffee, there is always something new to discover and appreciate.

I was there last Thursday and walked right swak into a shop decked with art on exhibit! You just gotta love the Maximus Athlete Shop Cafe, it is more than just a shop and cafe!

Currently on-going until December 12 is the Base Camp Art Exhibit where several young artists expressed their take on multisport and the athletes through various forms of art.

The exhibit was conceptualized and being held in partnership between Maximus and Tin-aw Art Gallery.

Don’t just take my word for it, swing by and see for yourself! If you are lucky, you might be able to still score a few art pieces as when I was there, a lot have been sold already.

The premier cycle cafe proudly unveils “Base Camp”, a collaborative venue with Tin-aw Art Gallery.

A merging of art and athleticism, “Base Camp” brings together twenty-two (22) young artists to express their views on the life of the athlete, the physical body movement using their medium of choice. The artists include: Ambie Abaño, Renato Barja Jr., Mars Bugaoan, Lennard Buhay, Ian Cadiong, Francis Commeyne, Cian Dayrit, Anton Del Castillo, Gale Encarnacion, Carzen Esprela, Gab Ferrer, Lui Gonzales, Lofranco, Henrielle Pagkaliwangan, Lee Paje, Julio San Jose, Jun-jun Sta. Ana, Nicole Tee, Clairelynn Uy, Eunice Vergara, Jemime Yabes. “Base Camp” is the first of what is hoped to be a series of exhibitions between Maximus and Tin-aw, as the two see a vibrant world that can be expressed both through sport and art.

“More than finishing times or medals, sport allows a person to express his physicality, his grit, his soul in the competitive arena. Yet art is just another way of expressing this aspect of living. With ‘Base Camp’, we want to be known as more than just a café or sports shop. We are about the passion for living, which you can experience on a bicycle, on the trail, and through this show that Tin-aw has curated for us.” says Maximus’ director, Andy Leuterio.

For Dawn Atienza, Director of Tin-aw Art Gallery, “Art is every where. And as such an art gallery is not just within the white walls of its exhibit space, but in the world around.” Sport and the Active Lifestyle merges well with Art because it deals with people, their physical bodies as well as the environment we all live in. We are very happy with Maximus X Tin-aw and “Base Camp” is just the first of a series of exhibits in Maximus.”
