Ayala Land celebrates its 30th anniversary with an artwork by Jaime Zobel de Ayala that best represents its journey.
An artist and strong art advocate, Zobel’s latest piece evokes a feeling of elation over what has been achieved through the years since he founded the company.
Solid colors dominate the piece to represent the strength and stability that the community has always found in Ayala Land. Distinct elements harmonize on canvas, akin to how the firm has built and curated the communities and their lifestyles.
The textured background is reminiscent of green landscapes, with a single, powerful brushstroke at the center to light up the work.
Titled “Abstract,” the work tells the story of how Ayala Land has brought light into once-empty spaces.
“Abstract” is carried over to Swatch in a limited commemorative edition.
It is a master artist’s homage to the continuous art of building and creating, filled with hope for what lies in the future—and a testament to how visions can come to life.
