Search Mindscape Foundation envisions itself to be a gateway into the contemporary art world for artists and art enthusiasts alike; as well as be a pathfinder that emerging visual artists can turn to for mentorship and support.


Justin Nuyda, a world-renowned Filipino contemporary artist, serves as the main inspiration for the foundation. For Nuyda, a mindscape is a representation of reality as the artist sees it. He believes that viewers of the artist’s work are free to dwell on the possible evocations of his inscape and emerge with more insights, realities, and interpretations of art, life, and more.

Search Mindscape Foundation represents Nuyda’s open-handed gesture of carving viable paths for the next generation of Filipino artists. It certainly is a reiteration of his hope that these emerging Filipino artists can, in their individual ways, define and refine with open-mindedness, a mindscape they can call their own.
