Art Fair Philippines has been the premier, most talked about art fair in the country since it started six years ago. Every year, a VVIP preview is held a day in advance of its public opening for the country's most dedicated art lovers, curators, and collectors.

On February 21, Manila's top art collectors arrived at The Link carpark in Makati for their first look at this year’s best offerings.

After doing the rounds, making initial purchases, and dropping by the Town & Country bar stationed on the fifth floor for a glass of Cloudy Bay wine, these seasoned collectors also mingled with gallerists, artists, and their fellow art lovers.
