The painting, also known as España Guiando a Filipinas (“Spain Leading the Philippines”), is regarded as one of the “enduring pieces of legacy” that the Filipinos inherited from Luna. The painting is a centerpiece art at the Luna Hall of the Lopez Memorial Museum.

"The Making of the Philippine Flag"
by National Artist, Fernando Amorsolo
The flag that we have today was actually an original design by the first President of the First Philippine Republic, Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo y Famy. The general subsequently tasked Marcela Marino de Agoncillo (regarded as the Mother of the Philippine Flag) to sew the first flag for the new republic, with the help of Marcela’s daughter Lorenza and Delfina Herbosa de Natividad.
While it is officially said that this proud flag was first unfurled during the Proclamation of Independence in Kawit, Cavite, there are historical records however that show that the first Philippine flag made its debut as displayed in a battle, one hundred and thirteen years ago today.
Certainly, more than a century of rich heritage of bravery and national pride.

Edsa to serve as one big canvas to 10 renowned artists
Get ready to see some major upgrade to MMDA Art. Starting May this year, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will launch a year-long project to recharge the Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (Edsa), with the whole 28-kilometer stretch of the famous street serving as a canvass to renowned artists in the country. 
Under the Edsa Project, walls and flyover pillars will be decorated with large-scale paintings by noted artists.
But it’s not just about Art, it’s also about the environment:

With a  total of 8,000 square meter-coverage of the proposed eight artworks,  the toxins in the exhaust of 80,000 cars and public utility vehicles can  be neutralized by the painted surfaces for three to five years,  Tolentino said.*

Cool, and green, the Pinoy way!

Not your usual Manila street art:

A different style of urban art or street artwork being painted along EDSA (near Magallanes, south-bound).

Breaking ground: Pinoy artwork sells for P47 Million
The above painting, entitled Grayground, by multi-awarded Filipino artist, Ronald Ventura was sold for a whopping HK$ 8,420,000 or P46,995,832.65, at the Sotheby’s Modern and Contemporary Southeast Asian Paintings auction held on April 4 in Hong Kong. “With more than 10 awards to his name, the 37-year-old University of Santo Tomas fine arts graduate is currently the country’s top-selling Filipino artist.”
Aside from Ventura, though, the works of other Filipino artists are in high demand in the art auctions as well; seems like Filipino artistry is getting more and more recognition anew.

Before tatoo was punk, it was life. Here is a photo from 1900s of a tattooed Bontoc Warrior, of Luzon island. The Bontocs were once well-known because of their headhunting practices in the olden days. Back then, the most distinctive body decoration was the tattoo. 

The Bontoc describe three types of tattoos: The chak-lag′, the tattooed chest of the head taker; pong′-o, the tattooed arms of men and women; and fa′-tĕk, for all other tattoos of both sexes. Women, however, were tattooed on the arms only.

Fruit Gatherer, 1950. Oil on artist’s board.

[The women I paint should have] a rounded face, not of the oval type often presented to us in newspapers and magazine illustrations. The eyes should be exceptionally lively, not the dreamy, sleepy type that characterizes the Mongolian. The nose should be of the blunt form but firm and strongly marked. … So the ideal Filipina beauty should not necessarily be white complexioned, nor of the dark brown color of the typical Malayan, but of the clear skin or fresh colored type which we often witness when we met a blushing girl.
- Fernando Amorsolo
