“Unfortunate History”

Acrylic and poster paint on canvas

Both the Arrival of Spain and the Diliman Commune took place in some of the worst times for our country; our colonization and Marcos’ regime. These two events in particular fill me with a lot of negative emotions, but it also fills me with hope because of our will to fight back. The concept for my artwork is a simple one, fighting back against the demons that took control over us. The demon looming over us is not strong enough to engulf us in flame. As long as we understand our situation and fight back, we have a chance against the demon.
