Cultural Creative: #CutTheCrap Artist Apol Sta. Maria

As part of Muni’s #CutTheCrap #NoMoreButts campaign, we’ve decided to create a special feature on the  illustrators and musicians who volunteered their time and talent to help raise awareness on the impact of cigarette butts on the environment and perform at the Muni #CutTheCrap gig on June 15, 2013 at Route 196. See our other awesome #CutTheCrap collaborators here.

Apol Sta. Maria is an Associate Creative Director for JWT Manila. This soft-spoken advertising legend has earned recognition in both local and international award shows – Cannes, D&AD, Clio, Media Spikes, and Adfest. But when he’s not busy with ad work, Apol creates comic books, exhibits his original artworks, and works on spaceships. He is also an avid instagrammer. Read on to get to know him more.

Muni: Tell us a bit about your art.

Apol: Most of the time, panget pero masaya ako pag nakakagawa ng art all the time.

Muni: Who are your main inspirations? How did you find your passion for art?

Apol: People in instagram.

Hindi ko lang alam yung difference ng walang art kasi lumaki ako sa bahay na mahilig sa art ang mga tao so parang natural na lang yun. Yung passion ko ay bumili ng libro e 😐

Muni: What messages do you want to convey through your art?

Apol: “hahaha”

Muni: What does “cutting the crap” mean to you?

Apol: Bawasan ang pagbabawas? – Sa cause natin, yung pagbawas ng pagbawas sa yamang dagat.

Muni: What made you want to be part of the #CutTheCrap gig?

Apol: Friend ko si Jen saka friends ko yung mga kasali so fun yun. Plus nalaman ko na kinakain pala ng mga isda yung upos ng yosi. Yuck.
