On July 4, New York-based Japanese artist Sophia Chizuco opens "Stardust" at the Mezzanine of the Makati Shangri-la Manila. "Stardust" is an exhilarating visual adventure: discovering, and embracing all the rich symbolisms of the circle. For Chizuco, “the circle is the most peaceful shape.” That she would connect expressively with this most meditative shape should come as no surprise. She was born and raised in the countryside of Japan surrounded by mountains, green tea fields and the Pacific Ocean. Moreover, she is the daughter of a microbiologist whose work it is to study and contemplate the cosmos of living organisms. By sheer instinct, Chizuco naturally felt the sensations of a shape breathing with life. "Stardust" will move to the Radisson Blu Cebu hotel from July 10 - 30. For more information, visit
