Philippine Botanical Art Society

Current Exhibition


























The “Of Art And Wine: Para sa Kalikasan” Philippines-Malaysia Joint Art Exhibition opened on July 29, 2021 to commemorate the World Nature Conservation Day. The two-month art exhibition saw the collaboration between artists from the Philippines and Malaysia in raising awareness for native species through the visual arts. The prestigious walls of Gallery C were not only a venue, but also a testimony of how an esteemed institution like Conrad Manila supports the advocacy of conserving and protecting wildlife and its habitat.

Fueled by the passion and dedication of the Philippine Fauna Art Society and the strong social responsibility of Conrad Manila, more than 160 artworks of native species were exhibited. 

Conrad Manila extends the art exhibition, due to its initial success, through a second segment, “Of Art and Wine: Para Sa Kalikasan II Botanical Art Exhibition”.  The sister organization of PhilFAS, the Philippine Botanical Art Society (PhilBAS) will exhibit eighty-five artworks showcasing botanical art from September 18 to October 23, 2021.

Ms. Bing Famoso—the founder of PhilFAS and PhilBAS—said, “we realized that, as artist advocates, we cannot feature only one facet of our biodiversity”. Ms. Famoso believes that subsequently displaying botanical art after the fauna exhibition, will provide the platform for all species to be represented.

The Philippines and Malaysia boast thousands endemic flora species, making both countries two of the seventeen megadiverse countries in the world. The “Of Art and Wine: Para Sa Kalikasan II Botanical Art Exhibition” hopes that awareness will strengthen the advocacy of conserving and protecting endangered botanical species.

The Philippine Botanical Art Society also known as PhilBAS was founded with the vision of Philippine arts centered only on Philippine endemic and indigenous flora species; with the mission to create awareness about our rich biodiversity; and to engage our countrymen to help protect and conserve our native species specifically the endangered ones through arts.

The Philippines is one of the 17 megadiverse countries in the world. Most of our flora species are endemic to our country but sadly most of them are threatened because of pollution, climate change, human activities like over-hunting, illegal mining, and deforestation that led to wildlife habitat loss. The Philippine Botanical Art Society aspires to inspire Filipinos through art to help in the conservation and protection of our native wildlife.
