Antipolo has long been known for its tradition in the crafts and arts, and the Pinto Art Gallery has taken this heritage well into the modern times as a venue for local artistic talent.
The Pinto Art Gallery is a contemporary art space in Antipolo City, Rizal. Its name comes from the Tagalog word for doors, and as such it considers itself a threshold open to all forms of contemporary art practice.
Its main structure was originally built in 2001 as a storage space for art works, but it was eventually developed by its designer, artist Antonio Leano, as a venue for exchanging exhibitions of modern and contemporary art.
Since its establishment, the Gallery has presented several major art events and shows, a number of them being international in scope and significance.
The Gallery also stands at the entrance of the hectare-wide Silangan Gardens, the weekend retreat of neurologist and art patron Dr. Joven Cuanang which he started building and developing since the late 1970s.
Pinto Art Gallery, located in Antipolo City, is a hilltop town east of Manila where it overlooks the metropolis and the Laguna de Bay. Antipolo is a 400-year old town noted for its Maytime pilgrimage tradition in honor of the town’s patron and icon, the Nuestra Senora dela Paz y Buen Viaje.
