The New Adventures of Awesome Bear Opening Recap

Monday, March 18th, 2013

This past Friday, March 15, we celebrated the opening of Philip Lumbang’s first solo show, The New Adventures of Awesome Bear at mph. The show allowed the public a glimpse into the world of Philip’s most recognizable character, Awesome Bear. Philip and his family traveled from the west coast to attend the opening, and as an added bonus, he painted our front facade. A huge thank you to Philip and to everyone who came out to the well-attended opening! The show will run until April 14 and artwork can also be purchased online. See more images from the night on our Flickr page.

The New Adventures of Awesome Bear – Philip Lumbang – 3/15/2013

Monday, March 4th, 2013

Philip Lumbang is inviting us into the world of his Awesome Bear character in his solo show The New Adventures of Awesome Bear, opening on March 15 from 6 – 9pm. We’ve seen Awesome Bear as Yoda, Voltron and even as a Ninja Turtle, and now we’ll take a further look into the depths of this character’s world. Philip has been creating bear creatures for awhile now, recognized for this in our bear-themed show last February, Rabid, Wild & Docile. Early on in his work as an artist, Philip’s bears were used to channel the noise, traffic and bad habits he found in LA, but over time, his bears shifted from rude to charming and served as a counter to the world’s problems. We can see that shift in the happy demeanor and wide grin of the Awesome Bear character, which we are excited to celebrate in Philip’s solo show.

To learn more about Philip, have a look at his home studio in this post. Also, keep your eyes on our blog for sneak peeks of the work from this upcoming show.
