The Idea

We’ll take it. We are a billboard.

Arresting your attention not only for our features but for the vision beyond; setting ourselves to drive (best in our capacity) the idea that local artists need not hope for appreciation only upon death. We know how difficult it is to find an audience when it seem as though the only voice you are given is as good as that for speaking underwater.

Obscured was conceptualized with the intention to provide a sounding board, to offer a dignified space where artists of different genres may showcase their works and encounter the similarly-minded, in hopes to foster an integrated and collaborative local arts community.


Coffeehouse Beginnings

Obscured was conceived by two friends over pungent coffee and a similarly bitter lamentation of the difficulty for young and aspiring artists to break through the veneer of the local arts scene. A space was needed for local artists to share their works and thoughts to an audience, and in turn, be appreciated and recognized for their efforts.


We are bounded. And we see it.



Beyond functions as Obscured’s submission and suggestion page, throwing the role of curator to anybody with keen eyes, who may submit or suggest art works on behalf of artists whom they feel have been hidden under a blanket of obscurity. Unlike our main address, Beyond is a portal and gallery that receives any local art work. Apart from being a collection of inspiration, works published on Beyond may be subsequently curated and featured on Obscured's main page.  

So get started now, try sharing a masterpiece of yours onto Beyond, who knows where this might take you.

Obscured would not have had such an amazing brand to build and expand on without your hard work and dedication.
