Star Magic head Lauren Dyogi took to Instagram to share what the ABS-CBN talent management arm is doing to ensure that the mental health of its artists is well taken care of amid the ongoing pandemic lockdown.
As part of Star Magic’s efforts to protect the mental well-being of its talents, Direk Lauren himself immersed in a portrait and freehand class led by an artist named Kristoffer Brasileño.
Lauren, who also serves as the head of ABS-CBN’s Entertainment TV Production, said he got the idea to hold the virtual art session during a casual conversation with Sandino Martin.
To his surprise, several artists from the Kapamilya talent agency are into painting which made for a perfect opportunity to hold the classes.
“On Zoom I noticed the background art piece which he said he painted. Then we got to talk about having an exhibit of paintings done by celebrities. Turns out there are quite a number of Star Magic artists dabbling into painting,” Direk Lauren said.
Direk Lauren went on to share that Star Magic will mount a digital exhibit featuring the works of Star Magic artists.
“So after some refresher workshop sessions on drawing, collages, watercolor, and acrylic painting, we will mount the first digital exhibit of Starmagic and @cartellino.art . Watch out for this sometime in June or July and hopefully, you can acquire some art pieces from budding master painters from Star Magic,” Direk Lauren stated.
Reiterating Star Magic’s goal to protect the mental wellness of its artists, he remarked: “From acting, performance and now visual arts, Star Magic aims to provide all possible venues for self-expression and for the mental wellness of our artists during this tough pandemic lockdown.”

Meanwhile, Sandino shared his excitement to take part in the art class which he said encourages him and his fellow artists to appreciate different faces.
“I’m super excited Direk. Salamat sa pag-encourage samin na gumawa ng sining sa kahit anong mukha at anyo,” Sandino commented on Lauren’s post.
