“The Shaman’s Tale”: A Life Drawing Session at Pineapple Lab

“The Shaman’s Tale”: A Life Drawing Session at Pineapple Lab


Mynila Team December 13, 2018 Music & Culture

On 24 Nov, art enthusiasts gathered for yet another nude figure drawing session, an event that celebrates the beauty of the human form. Titled “The Shaman’s Tale”, Pens N’ Brushes brought to life ancient tribal beings, individuals who practice divination and healing. The session was held at Pineapple Lab, an art and performance hub in Poblacion, Makati.

This was the group’s 7th installment since they launched this series in the Philippines in May 2017.

The event began with an opening act from Timog, one of the up-and-coming bands that performed some of their best acoustic covers and was then followed by the first set, which was presented by a female life drawing model. She meticulously executed poses ranging from 2 to 20 minutes long and drew an overwhelming response from the artists.

The second set featured a male life drawing model who performed equally dramatic poses with his head festooned with a late nineteenth-century headdress embellished with a cervidae skull. This personification served the artists with a different approach in exploring the human figure like no other. Both sets lasted for one hour each.

The highlight of the night was the final set where the nude male and female models joined together and exemplified tribal personas with their breathtaking poses. There were three different poses in this segment that lasted from 5 to 20 minutes long, giving the artists ample time to work on their art pieces.

Faber-Castell Philippines, the event’s official art material partner, brought in their top-notch drawing mediums and let everyone use it for free. Beers and light canapes were also served during the session.
