John Lloyd Cruz bought an oil on canvas painting by Luis Santos, the son of Soler Santos who founded the West Gallery in 1989.
The Untitled painting, worth P120,000, features the actor as the subject and was exhibited at the Art Fair that was held from February 5th to 8th at The Link carpark of Ayala Center in Makati City.
It was one of the gallery's most photographed art works during the exhibit.
According to reports, John Lloyd and his girlfriend Angelica Panganiban were seen at least twice at the 2015 Art Fair.
John Lloyd also attended last year's Art Fair as one of the Swatch endorsers.
A patron of the arts, the actor considers himself a “young art collector” as he started acquiring painting in his late 20s.
Esquire Philippines has featured John Lloyd's impressive collection of paintings by Elmer Borlongan, Pardo de Leon, Pow Matinez, Nikki Luna and Manuel Ocampo in its cover story of the actor, February 2014 issue.
