Art is everywhere if you know where to look. In BGC, your search shouldn’t last long at all.
Bonifacio Global City (BGC) has been an icon of urban development in modern Manila. Aside from the good shopping finds and awesome restaurants, it has built an attractive personality with art staged on its corners and streets. Many have fallen in love with BGC’s charm, and not just because nearly everything you need is already in the neighborhood, but also because it’s a brand new city with walls dressed in colors and stories by the many local and foreign artists who chose to share a piece of themselves for everyone to see.
Pursuit of Passion takes a look at a few of the art sweet spots around BGC that would make you stop in your tracks or simply make you want to get a condo in one of its high-rise buildings.

Calamansi and Sampaguita
by Francisco Diaz
In the middle of a modern landscape, this wall piece will remind you of your deep-rooted relationship with nature. Done by Francisco Diaz at BGC Corporate Center’s back wall along 32nd Street, its soft and pastel colors aim to calm you down as you go about your day.
by Faileart of Brooklyn
Although BGC has established itself as a community of corporations and modern living, Faile has somehow injected a taste of the street and real life on one of the walls at 5th Avenue corner 25th Street. It tells the story of a woman feeling at home and relaxed in her own turf. A few blocks near this mural is Avida Towers Turf BGC, a condo complex where you can build your own nest in a place you can truly call your own.
