This 21-year-old visual artist can turn your ukay haul into wearable art

Feb 3, 2022 1 comments

There is a fine line between art and fashion. That is why for Carlos Hermo A. Baldemoro, a 21-year-old visual artist from Paranaque city, thrifted ukay-ukay pieces have become the new canvas for his one-of-a-kind paintings.
 

Baldemoro, like any other artist out there, has had his life upended in ways when the pandemic started. But that didn't keep the artist from having fun. According to Baldemoro, it has been hard for him ever since the pandemic began. Luckily, it gave him chances to explore more of his artistry. Now, he also spearheads his fashion shop housing his repurposed hand-painted thrifter garments.

What is Wearable Art? 


The movement of wearable art is not new as it was initially introduced at the close of the 1960s, boomed in the 1970s, and recently has seen a resurgence in the millennial age. 
 

The fascinating part about repurposing garments into a new creation is the innovativeness of people on thinking of new products. Based on recent discoveries, people are having a hard time thinking outside the box, but when people do so, they are helping the environment and giving hope on thinking creatively that we shouldn't just think on the norm on how the garments are used. "When I design garments, I think carefully on what is my objective is," Baldemoro shared. "Therefore, I want them to feel extraordinary, for they are wearing designs that represent hope, diversity, innovativeness, and colorful creations."
