See that higante? That’s what the #ARTitasofManila and I painted for the Parkfest event at Nayong Pilipino. The event aims to revive our beloved Nayong Pilipino through showcasing the works of local creatives. We were very lucky to have been invited to be a part of this event. 🙂 We got the Mindanao higante and we scheduled a day for painting it and painted from 10 am to 8pm! Super worth it though, especially when we see that the crowd appreciated our efforts. 🙂
Here are photos of the other higantes:
With the artitas (missing Lai and Airees). We are eternally grateful for the help of Tita Geli and Tyang Ella too, thanks Titas!
There are so many beautiful artworks made by Filipino creatives in the park, and you can visit the park till 7pm today to see the works for yourself!
I joined Richelle’s chalk walk and started to draw this merbird using white chalk but unfortunately I wasn’t able to finish it. Happy that when I returned to it some kids have already colored some parts:
