The Manila Hotel, in collaboration with the Manila Bulletin, will host an exhibit titled "Hatch" for the forthcoming Easter season in the Grand Lobby of The Manila Hotel. The Grand Dame surprises its guests throughout the month of April with the hotel lobby filled with brilliant Easter eggs.
Hatch showcases the outstanding talent of artists from several disciplines in painting on an unconventional and unexpected medium—an acrylic egg—to give the traditional practice of decorating eggs a modern and fashionable twist. The artists were challenged to adapt their various styles to the medium. The amazing collection of Easter hatch eggs is hand-painted by reputable Filipino craftsmen. Each egg uses cutting-edge materials to create a unique mixed media design, while others opt for a more classic look by painting with oil or acrylic on resin. These Easter eggs are truly works of art. The concept is to give life to or transform a mostly static and lifeless object into a dynamic work of art.
The Manila Bulletin took home the gold prize for its "Hatch" project at the 55th Anvil Awards night. Hatch has provided Filipino artists with a fresh and distinct medium. Hatch exhibit was moved from city to city rather than remaining in one place where visitors were introduced to a new art genre.The said exhibit is on display at the Grand Lobby of The Manila Hotel from March until the end of April 2023.
