Khervin Gallandez | First Solo Art Exhibition

"Requiem" Halloween Art Exhibit

With barely three weeks lead time, “Requiem” by Khervin Gallandez is currently up at Samtoy Books til the end of the month before it proceeds to Arte Luna, Paoay, for a 2-day (All Saints’ Day-All Souls’ Day) feature. A Halloween art exhibit, the show, according to the growing Ilocano artist, is all about mysticism and surrealism. “Physically exhausted but happy” is his state of mind.

Pandora’s Box, among the acrylic artworks, struck my eye first. Passion and youth are distinctly Gallandez’s strength. The control of brush strokes makes a Gallandez grand and crisp at the same time.

“I’d like to thank, my younger brother, my partner in almost all the hardest part, Ms. Gee, the curator of Samtoy, Maribeth Macayanan, the assistant, and Sirib Youth organization,” Khervin wishes to say.

Ilocos Norte events this Halloween season


It’s the season once again for platefuls of atang and burning candles. When you’ve already exhausted the Nation white paint you bought from Ace Marketing, you may want to pay Requiem a visit. Young Ilocano artist Khervin Gallandez is all set for his first show. The Halloween art exhibit opens on the 25th at Samtoy Books, La Tabacalera Lifestyle Center.


On the same day, have a beer, or more, at the Eagle’s Nest Night of the Living Drunks. Be a Drunkentein for a night, but please, people, don’t be accurate zombies. Enjoy!
