The works of Kawayan KAWAYAN DE GUIA exhibited in the Queensland Art Gallery here in Brisbane.
Excerpts from https://www.qagoma.qld.gov.au/whats-on/exhibitions
KAWAYAN DE GUIA. Born 1979 Baguio City, the Philippines. Lives and works in Baguio City, the Philippines. Working across painting, installation and sculpture, Kawayan De Guia incorporates an eclectic mix of objects into his wall-based works and art projects, including Ifugao rice gods, decorative torpedo bombs, and American jukeboxes transformed into Pinoy jeepneys. His works humorously and piquantly comment on a multitude of issues, from the histories of occupation, trade and exchange that have influenced Philippine history and culture, to the relationships between community and commodities. De Guia lives in Baguio City, a key alternative art centre to Manila, situated in the mountainous region of Cordillera in the northern central part of the island of Luzon. Like his mentors Santiago Bose, Bencab and Robert Villanueva — who were part of the Baguio Arts Guild — he is deeply embedded in Cordilleran culture and interested in the heritage and indigenous cultures of the region. De Guia is also a curator and author of key projects presenting the artists of his community. *********
My POV. Very colourful and the rich colour of his canvases reminded me so much of Baguio and the Philippines. An interesting mixed of old and new. Based on my personal view, it conveys the struggle and the strong will of our old traditions and culture to survive the fast phased of the modern world and technology. I hope that ,we , the new generation of Pinoys will fight for it to survive and thrive for the generations next to us..
