The Manila Hotel in partnership with Manila Bulletin kicks off HATCH: An Easter Eggchanted Garden Exhibit

The iconic Manila Hotel, known to be the well-loved Grand Dame of the Philippines, brings joy to guests this whole month of April as the hotel lobby is transformed into an enchanting garden filled with colorful Easter eggs.

The exquisite collection of Easter eggs is hand-painted by revered Filipino artists, some using innovative materials for a distinctive mixed media design, or going for a more classic look using oil or acrylic on resin; while some are even sculptures. The concept is to give life or transform an essentially static and lifeless object into a dynamic form of art.

Talented Filipino artists who turned the enlarged eggs into a canvass and produced their own masterpiece

HATCH, a project of The Manila Hotel in partnership with Manila Bulletin, is meant to support the Filipino art scene. Initially, this project was organized for local artists to gather during Easter. HATCH placed a modern and sophisticated twist on the traditional ritual of painting eggs by showcasing the exquisite talent of artists from various disciplines in painting on an unconventional and unexpected medium – an acrylic egg.

The success of HATCH since its initial launch on 2017 is the reason why the exhibit is now on its third year.  This 2019, the egg collection of Manila Bulletin will be hitting 98 in number where each egg has different personalities and stories to tell.
