The subjects of the paintings were handpicked "not just for their musicality but for their unique look." The selection of portraits sounds like the lineup for a rockin' concert, which includes Raimund Marasigan, Bamboo Manalac, Razorback, Urbandub, Kamikazee and Spongecola, among others. Quartana is known in local artist circles for the use of volcanic ash in his work, which lends a different texture and unique look to his paintings. Aside from musicians, the art exhibit also features various landscapes done by Quartana as well.

Around the early part of next year, the exhibit will go on tour in major cities nationwide. Check out for the artist's proofs!
