Philippines: The Land of the Greatest Filipino Artists in the World - Part 2
In this post, I am about to share more photos of artworks, designs, and artistic presentations of items found here in the Philippines. Let me be your guide to the art gallery and you be the judge.
So this is the Part 2 of my Art Gallery showcasing the talent of our great Filipino artists, painters, sculptors, and designers. For those who haven't yet seen Part 1, here is the link to that post:
Here we go now on the next gallery hall.
"The Painting's Guardian"
"Simplistic Wooden Chair"
"Welcome to the Jungle"
"Tribe's Ultimate Collection"Igorot communities near Baguio City and you'll definitely see these stuffs around. The elder women of the tribe love embroidery, pottery, handicraft-making, and more beneficial hobbies. Look at them, these stuffs were certainly made by talented hands. Include to that the life-size carabao. Magnifico!
"Inside the Forbidden Room"
"Watch Your Steps"
"Abstract Broken Tiles Mosaic"
"The Logical Connection"
"Way to the Captain"
As if you were on a scene from a ship navigating the ocean and you're about to approach the captain on his deck. See the ladder? That's the only way. Well, it is easy to imagine that this is an old and about-to-retire ship and people from below are just ignoring it. Sunken ships, by the way, are everywhere in the country.
"Bravest Filipino Hunter"Rizal Park and any other town plaza across the country as a sign of respect and honor for the heroic act they did.
"A Secret Garden"
"Trash Can Guardian"
"Obviously Not a Chandelier"
"Paper Art that Holds Paper"
"The Living Dead"
This wood craft survived the test of times and so I named it "The Living Dead". I remember making a project like this when I was in the elementary school. It's the smaller version and we call it here "tuod" or drip wood. If you have one of these at home, don't throw it away. You can paint it with varnish, hang plants around, or just make it sit on the corner, and there you have a pretty of view of a living dead wood.
"Carabao Inhales Weed"Carabao is Philippines national animal but to see one like this, I really don't know what this means. Did you notice the children scattered around? Whoa, what the heck is that?! And the carabao, is it inhaling tobacco or is it weed? Weird work of art making it one of the most attractive art in this gallery. Quite hard to figure out the meaning of this art.
I hope you've enjoyed viewing all these masterpieces created by our greatest Filipino artists. You can always go back and view them.
The full credit goes to "Oh My Gulay" restaurant located at downtown Baguio City and also to"Kidlat Tahimik", one of the greatest Filipino artists of today. I would also like to say Thank You to all the artists who owns a piece of any of these artworks and designs.With you, Philippines is becoming known to the world. This blog post is my way to help artists like you to be recognized. Best of luck.
