Various young artists, photographers, and entrepreneurs at MINT College convened at the MINT Cafeteria last January 22-24, for the MINT Art Mart.

This in-house bazaar is where MINT Multimedia Arts (MMA) students showcase and launch their own products.

Of the Palette

The Art Mart is a venue for the school’s artists and entrepreneurs to create an audience for their work. Tables were lined up with DIY pins, stickers, and card prints created for the young market.

These collectibles featured the different drawing styles of the student designers, drawing inspiration from celestial bodies, famous artworks, familiar icons, and pop culture.

Across the MINT Cafe is an imposing wall mural done by the MINT MMA Creatives, a school organization of MINT’s resident graphic illustrators, calligraphers, and designers. This year’s theme is “Multimediaverse,” with doodles of lines, shapes, cartoon, planets, stars, and symbols reflecting a multimedia cosmos of sorts.

On the other side of the Cafe, the MINT Photo Club held a photo show, exhibiting their best captures of people, events, and places.

For the Palate

Aside from collectible merchandise, student entrepreneurs also sold their own spin-offs of the poke bowl, vegetarian fare, and popular desserts and sweets at the MINT Food Mart.

Some of the stalls included Kapoké, owned by MINT MBM alumni Angelo Vargas, VegetaBowl by MINT MMA Senior Aia Arkoncel, and MINT MMA student Kimberlee Montes’ red velvet crinkles with cream cheese filling.

The MINT Art Mart was a great avenue not only for our young artists and sellers, but also to everyone at MINT who is in search for some inspiration and good food. W
