Bobi Valenzuela died of a heart stroke last December 12, 2008.
Bobi was one of the influential curator of Philippine Art since as early as 1970 ‘s , It was just a one jeepney ride from my home to where Bobi spends his day at Hiraya Gallery , that was the time I just finished my Fine Arts degree at the Philippine Women’s University. Words are not enough to describe Bobi , same as he has so much to say about me and my works but I can say that I was one of the artist who kept some of the memories of Bobi . It was the time that Noel Cuizon, Joel Alonday, Raymond Maliwat, Joey Cabangis, Dindo Peralta, Zeus Inocencio and me will have an afternoon coffee with Bobi just to hang around and eventually at the end we had a series of group show around the galleries in Manila.
Bobi we owe u one ! Thanks for all the direction and guidance!
