“Letters From Earth” unfolds with artworks that are a personified observation and appreciation of the artist Mischa’s sentiments about the cosmos. Here, Mischa’s series of abstractions address the expansiveness of the universe itself. In a quiet attempt to comment on the human question of existence and its intricacies, Mischa utilizes an interplay of pronounced and thicker palettes combined with softer, more muted hues to present nebula-like compositions.
Mischa, also known as Michael Toms Semana, is a two-time semi-finalist in the Metrobank Arts and Design Excellence Awards. As he slowly builds up his resumé as an artist, he is maturing well in the field of abstract expressionism through his consistent use of emotional splashes and strong sense of color harmony. —CONTRIBUTED
