Sining Kamalig was founded as an art gallery in the early part of 1970s, by sisters Mrs. Balboa and Mrs. Kalaw, to provide local artists democratic space to express their art within the Philippines and beyond. And to develop the artistic cravings of those who wish to do so. It has established itself as an institution in the art world and is considered the vanguard of contemporary art in the Philippines by gallerists, artists and collectors alike. From its humble beginnings, Sining Kamalig has seen the birth of shop6, a group of conceptual artists invited by Mrs. Balboa to use the space she provided shop6 with to experiment with their own type of artistic styles. It had also housed several art groups where masters and national artists belonged to. Provided studio space for young artists. Initiated artfairs in situ. The sisters believed in an ethical and professional art industry and used the gallery as a vehicle to strive for that ideal in a fun and enjoyable way.
It is therefore timely that one of the heirs has decided to resurrect Sining Kamalig and incorporate it into World Experience Philippines.
