Project Bakawan and the UP Vargas Museum staged another mob mural activity last November 30, 2014. This time, two artist groups created two murals, each one presenting their views on issues on the environment. The first group of artists are composed of two young artist collectives: Studio 1616 (Dale Erispe, John Marin, Keb Cerda and Roy Rosatase) and The Working Animals TWA (Emard Cañedo and Ronson Culibrina). They painted a contemporary interpretation of the traditional Filipino practice of “Bayanihan”.
The second group of artists included Aze Ong, Buddy Ching, Buds Convocar, Demosthenes Campos, Jonathan Joven, Joseph Ablay, Norly Meimban, Rommel Toledo and Simkin de Pio. This mixed group of figurative and abstract painters, air brush artist and [soft] sculptress combined their different media and techniques in creating a mural on education and the environment.
