Coconuts Manila Arts

For reviews, previews and the latest happenings in the Manila arts scene, head on to the Coconuts Manila arts section. Manila is home to interesting Filipino artists who are more than willing to share their insights and creative process. We love chatting up with painters or film makers who give us a more in-depth look into their work. We also have listings of must-see exhibits, must-watch plays and must-catch gigs. The writers of Coconuts Manila are avid supporters of local artists, and we always try to spread the word about their work.
