The Life Drawing Setup by WHOAREMARO: The Coolest Drawing Event In Manila

WHOAREMARO is a two-man team of visual artists who makes and markets events for the local art scene. Our most prominent project, The Life Drawing Setup, is a nude figure drawing event consisting of back-to-back male and female posing sessions accompanied by live electronic music performances and liquor and coffee.

The Life Drawing Setup will be happening on September 17, Saturday at 7-11PM at Warehouse Eight – a co-working space in the artists’ compound of La Fuerza along Chino Roces in Makati City. The event itself will feature back-to-back, male and female nude figure drawing sessions.


Each model will be in the middle of a circular audience while they are performing a variety of poses and holding it for a different set of times (like 2 minute poses, 10 minute poses, etc.) for a total of 90 minutes per model. The drawing sessions would be accompanied by live electronic music performances, drinks like specialty coffee and liquor, and booths where original merchandise from local independent artists could be purchased.

The event was first conjured up when we were coming up with ideas on how to give our fellow artists more excuses to go out to make friends in social events. Weirdly enough nude figure drawing events – events that usually take place in major artistic cities around the world – didn’t exist around Manila, or at least we haven’t heard of them. We want to further bond the local artist community comprised of art students, professionals, curious aspirants, veterans, and people who just want to hang out and experience the community for fun. We love art and the art community and want to contribute to it by making their own thing that people would get excited about.

Our goals are to excite continuous learning, to strengthen the creative community, and to promote independent creators. We try to achieve these in every project they do and this is no more prevalent in their first and most successful project so far: The Life Drawing Setup. The creative community is growing as more art centric events like these are sprouting out and being heard of. “What warms our hearts the most is when we get people into art because they’ve heard of our events”.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a professional artist or have been dabbling around with art or have never even considered yourself creative – if you’re interested in creating art or making friends in the artist community, WHOAREMARO is the team to go to.
