A chance encounter paved the way for migrant artists group, Guhit Kulay, to take part in the Malayang Kultura art exhibit which opened on May 12 at Nido Asia Gallery on Hollywood Road, Central on May 12.

The show came to life when this writer dropped in on the gallery and said a simple hello to a fellow Filipino there. Jovs Apo, who was then putting together a Philippine week show for Nido Asia, lost no time in extending an invitation to Guhit Kulay to take part in the exhibit which was to be staged in just three weeks.

Guhit Kulay, which was formed by a group of migrant domestic workers who met at a free art workshop at the Philippine Consulate, immediately grabbed the chance to show their works in the prestigious gallery.

Apo, together with his Hong Kong-based colleagues Janice Gonzales and Kate Leanne Reyes, volunteered their time to Nido Asia so the event could materialize. Apo curated the exhibit which focused on the works of Guhit Kulay and other Filipino community organizations.


The show was made possible by the generosity of Nido Asia’s founder, Trevor Lin, who believes that art should be shared freely for all to see and appreciate. He offers his gallery and studio for free to artists who believe in creating art with “no boundaries, just pure love.”

Nido, which comes from the Italian word for “nest,” has two galleries. The first is set up as a “nest”, which is meant to nourish the eggs, a metaphor for arts. The second gallery is called the “tree,” meaning more nests are incubated there.

Lin said Nido has two art galleries, the first art gallery is set up as the “nest” meant to nourish the eggs, a metaphor of arts, and second gallery is called the “tree.” The “tree” gallery meant more nest to be incubated, Lin explained.

He said that in opening his door to everyone he hopes to not only be connected to different cultures through all the people he met, but also to learn more about the world.

Guhit Kulay feels lucky to have found a home where its artists could show their works to a bigger audience, and also have a space for their future workshops. The group has now expanded from photography to embroidery, sewing and design, video editing, jewelry making, upcycling, and now, solar art.

Their works will be on show at Nido Asia everyday until May 26. On May 19, the Malayang Kultura exhibit will also feature Philippine music and face painting as an interactive activity. The shows are open to the public,

Nido Asia is located on 2/F, Lee Wah Mansion, 177 Hollywood Road, Hong Kong, diagonally across Man Mo Temple. To get there, take bus no 26 which stops at the Landmark in Central.
