7.2 The Artist: Vicky Marquez

Vicky Marquez, II BS Communications Technology Management

Our encounter with Vicky Marquez proved two things about the Ateneo Musicans' Pool (aMp): first, you don't have to be a musician to join the organization. It's open to both musicians and music-lovers alike. Second, you don't just hone your musical skills in this org.  Vicky's artistic abilities were developed after she joined aMp's design department in her freshman year.

Her works are influenced by contemporary artists like Shepard Fairey, Marguerite Sauvage and local artist Valerie Chua. More than that, however, she finds inspiration in the people she knows and the music she listens to.

What is she wearing?

Vicky complements a nice, sunny day with a bright yellow dress and matching flowery flats. She adds a touch of paradoxical ruggedness to her girly outfit with a denim jacket. "Dressing up is really all about expressing yourself," the music-loving artist quips. "I don't want it to look like it came straight off a magazine, or from someone else."

Vicky leaves us with a piece of advice on originality and personality when it comes to dressing up. When finding outfits you like in magazines or blogs, don't rip off the entire look. Search for the key elements in the outfit that you really like and find ways to incorporate your own personality into this.
