• 11-year-old Boy’s Exhibit Features Urban Landscapes Sketched from Memory

    Artist Lance “Tikoy” Basilio has asperger’s syndrome and has had no formal art training.
  • A unique exhibition will be on display at the Museo Pambata until February 22, Saturday. Entitled “The Gift of Perspective”, it showcases intricate pen and pencil sketches of urban landscapes. 

    The catch? The artist is actually an 11-year-old. Lance “Tikoy” Basilio, a grade four student at the Montessori School in Pasay City, has been drawing since he was four. What started as a fascination with the world’s various flags led to a hobby and talent, drawing skylines and skyscrapers.

    Tikoy has Asperger’s Syndrome, a mild classification of autism.

    What is even more amazing about Tikoy is that he has had no formal art training, though his mother, Mimi Basilio, an interior lighting decorator supposes her designs found around the house may have inspired the boy. 

    The exhibit features 40 of Tikoy’s urban landscape sketches, all drawn from memory. 



    For more information, call Museo Pambata at (02)523-1797 to 98 loc. 107 or e-mail info@museopambata.org. To RSVP, send an SMS to Mimi Basilio at 0922-891-0593.
