Fragility Art Installation by Arch Richard Buxani
Buxani is a graduate of Architecture at the College of Architecture and Fine Arts (CAFA), University of Santo Tomas where he unknowingly had his first influences and lessons in art. He embarked on a career in the corporate world after college, and was propelled in the field of high-rise property development. Though it has nothing to do with the process of creating art, it has everything to do with living with and around it. In architecture, he is an advocate on the use of recycled materials in building houses, a great influence in his designs, whether modern or vernacular. Old wood has played a great importance in his use of materials, and had greatly used it for building structures, furniture and accessories. It was a natural progression for him to go back again to art. In 2008 after a trip to Singapore, he started to paint and had never stopped since. Architecture has always been a source of his inspiration.
