"Never forget the roots of your family"

A little serious of our mind:

 Try to imagine, that your grandchildren can´t speak with you in your language......

Learn your family the language of the roots, so your family - children can speak their language from childhood!

Learn your family the culture of the roots, so your family understand and respect the roots e.g. Mano Po!

From sewing, felting and embroidery to printmaking and woodcraft, to weaving local threads and fibers of our traditional craft history, to brewing craft beer. We view the work of our hands as a way we can share our views, tastes, experiences and aesthetics with each other, and hopefully cultivate an appreciation for the handmade and handcrafted design.

And who knew they're also gifted in classical and modern techniques of painting? Say it's inevitable, but for a town more commonly known for its woodworks, it's fascinating to discover a multiplicity of talents in one corner of Luzon.

Rags to Riches - The Filipino Women Turning Rags into High Fashion

14 January 2012. In the slums of Manila, a determined group of women are literally turning rags to riches. In a city where the gap between rich and poor is clear to see, this pioneering new project brings the two closer together.

Taking leftover fabric from clothing factories before weaving them into rugs and handbags, 'Rags to Riches' products have become the latest fashion accessory in Manila's high-end malls. It's founder, 27-year-old Reese Fernandez, says her business works to "empower women" in the local community, "bringing back the dignity of the people". The women, many of whom used to live on a rubbish dump, now earn an income comparable to that of a nurse in the Philippines.

Several cottage industries exist in its locality such as furniture, bolo, baskets, hand bags, trays, buri/anahaw hats & fan making; which are highly functional products. These extraordinary and environment-friendly products, makes them significant in the global market.

is a fiber made from the leaves of a pineapple plant and is commonly used in the Philippines. Since piña is from a leaf, the leaf has to be cut first from the plant. Then the fiber is pulled or split away from the leaf. Most leaf fibers are long and somewhat stiff. Each strand of the piña fiber is hand scraped and is knotted one by one to form a continuous filament to be handwoven and then made into a piña cloth.

Within a year, he was chosen as one of nine finalists in the Motion Picture Academy's Oscars Designer Challenge at Downtown Los Angeles Fashion Week. Eco-friendly materials have become an important part of Oliver's fashion sense, and he promotes his native country's fabrics internationally by including them in his collections. "My country has been green long before it was fashionable," he explains. "The Philippines has been turning pineapple leaves and abaca plant leaves into fabric for hundreds of years; so out of national pride, I want to show how elegant 'green' can be. ... Piña, what we call the fabric from pineapple fiber, is naturally off-white with an organza texture. It creates vintage-looking gowns, but also can be dyed vibrant colors."

With his consistent and successful use of folk themes, myths and legends, his work strongly links Filipino, Malay and Indonesian cultures together.

Imao creates and assumes, both with his sculptures and paintings, Southeast Asian archetypes. His most familiar motif, for example, the sarimanok, is essentially a link to that story of the rooster in the first of seven heavens.

Abdulmari Asia Imao is the first Moro, and the only one to date, to be honored as National Artist of the Philippines. Named National Artist for Sculpture in 2006, he articulates Philippine Muslim art and culture through his work not only as a sculptor but also as a painter, photographer, ceramist, documentary film maker, cultural researcher, and writer.

Camille dela Rosa

In her early career, Camille produced spontaneously and exhibited her gardens, churches, landscapes, flowers, portraits, nudes, people in various endeavors, and her abstracts. She was tagged as the "Youngest impressionist painter in the Philippines". Yet suddenly in her 8th year as artist, she became restless and an urge to get out of the doldrums besieged her. She felt the gnawing call to unravel her real psyche. By the year 2009, Camille surprised the art scene when she completely departs from those hedonistic or pleasant to the senses subjects and explore the surreal, the morbid, the mechanical, and the unknown.

1942 Born December 1 in Caloocan, Rizal, eldest of five children of Alfonso Paras Mananquil, Sr. of Pampanga and Gloria Malicdem Castillo of Pangasinan.

Romeo C. MananQuil met an unpaintable culture shock when he decided to relocate his family to Canada in 1985. Everything was alien to him. And he was an alien to everybody. He landed a job as a visual artist - his passport to that subcontinent covering 9,922.33 sq. km. However, he had to grapple with nostalgia. All that he could do to connect with the old country was to reminisce his happy and successful life and career in the third world country of his birth.

Philippine Graffiti Art

Filipino graffiti artists tend to be very polite. Usually, in other countries, graffiti art is done on the sly on walls where it shouldn't be, and the artists do it when no one's looking to escape arrest.

But in the Philippines,

it is done on broken down walls of old buildings which no one would care about anyway. Suddenly the abandoned walls become special because someone, or perhaps a crew, used these walls as a canvas. Just look at this piece, the amazing movement on it makes this the beginnings of what could be a beautiful mural.

Asphalt by Gabriel Barredo - Art Fair Philippines 2013

Remark this is an album in the sub-album "Woodcarvers, Sculptors etc. and their works" in the main-album "Painters, Woodcarvers, Sculptors - etc. and their works"

Asphalt as the eye can see: Taking centerstage as Art Fair Philippines’ special exhibit is “Asphalt,” a rambling installation from sculptor Gabriel Barredo, an intriguing, fantastical folly imbued with the amazing creative and mechanical genius of the artist. MANILA, Philippines - Asphalt is commonly used to cover streets, fill out potholes and cover fissures. Around 625 BC, this material was already being used in Babylon for building roads. The word has a Greek origin which means “secure” — roughly interpreted as to avert collapse or to thwart a fall. Romans on the other hand changed the Greek’s asphaltos to asphaltus, which is their caulking element for baths and reservoirs. Interestingly enough, Gabriel Barredo’s kinetic installation commissioned by Art Fair Philippines is titled “Asphalt.” It is 30 feet in length and is composed of a number of elaborate sculptures. Why “Asphalt”? “Why not?” says Barredo. “I thought of a word that could convey darkness, grime, dirt and detachment all at the same time.”

TRADITION IN PHILIPPINE THEATER THE SPANISH COLONIAL TRADITION IN PHILIPPINE THEATER
From Zarzuela to Sarwela From Zarzuela to Sarwela

The Zarzuela is one of the few theater art forms one can clearly say conveys an old Filipino sentiment. In spite of it being inherited from Spanish colonizers, the zarzuela was utilized, enjoyed and later transformed by the Filipinos into its now more popular type the Filipinized Sarswela. This article attempts to see how far the Filipino sarswela evolved from its roots in the zarzuelas of Spain and how it provided jobs and creative venues for Filipino composers, musicians and theater artists during the time of its inception. It is also known as sarswela/sarsuela.

Zamboanga 1936 - LOOK the film which tells the story of the past

ubeIceCreamCone wrote on Jul 5, 2009: "Zamboanga" was directed by my grandfather, Marvin Gardner in his native Philippines in 1936. His screen name was Eduardo De Castro. Thought lost forever, it was found in 2003? by Philippine filmmaker Nick de Ocampo at the US Library of Congress. (The copy came from Finland, hence the subtitles.) It stars Fernando Poe, Sr., the father of Fernando Poe, Jr., Philippine actor and presidential candidate. It is the oldest Filipino feature film known to exist. "Zamboanga" came at a crucial moment in the history of filmmaking in the Philippines. It showed the picturesque sea and the captivating landscape and with warring tribes and a kidnapped maiden to hook the audience’s attention," Deocampo reveals.

A story about the Badjaos and the Tausogs, rival Muslim tribes for centuries. The Badjaos, a group of sea gypsies, ply the sea for food and for pearls. Hassan (Tony Santos), a son of the Badjao chief falls in love and marries Bala Amai (Rosa Rosal) who is a niece of Datu Tahil (Jose de Cordova), head of the Tausogs. At the urging of Bala Amai, Hassan decides to leave his tribe and join the Tausogs. Eventually, Datu Tahil learns of Hassan's expertise in finding rare pearls in the sea, thus exploiting him for his own selfish interests. Hassan and Bala Amai resist him, feeling that their self-respect have been trampled on. They decide to go back to the Badjaos and lead a more humble, but nevertheless peaceful life. The Badjaos accept them with all their hearts. An LVN classic film, largely because of shining performances by Rosa Rosal and Tony Santos. It won the award for best direction (Lamberto V. Avellana, National Artist for Theater and Film in 1976), best story (Rolf Bayer), best editing (Gregorio Carballo), and best cinematography (Mike Accion) at the 1957 Southeast Asia Film Festival held in Tokyo.

Ethnic groups - Brides of Sulu - “providing a rare glimpse into a lost culture."

A flick's production history is clothed in mystery. Filipino actors and a very tropical setting - the silent film Brides of Sulu continues to confound film historians. Last Friday night, "Brides of Sulu" opened the 5th International Silent Film Festival at Shangri-la Mall. The film's main stars were 1930s matinee idols Adelina Moreno and Eduardo de Castro. It also featured other Filipino actors. James J. Gilbert narrates the story, which is introduced in a foreword as a "simple love story based upon fact and the rites, rituals and ceremonies portraying the hatred of the Mohammedan Moro for the Unbeliever is not fiction. As an authentic document of Moro life, this production is designed to instruct as well as entertain." Look more and the full description about the video HERE
