Kamalayan Exhibit

Kamalayan is an annual art exhibit for raising awareness towards a theme that changes every year. For 2019, the exhibit addressed agriculture and other sustainable & environmental advocacies. I made 3 cyanotype prints from illustrations I created that focused on marine life and farmers.

"Bahay Coral"

Coral reefs create shelter for marine life through their sprawling colonies of coral. The artwork depicts a Coral fused with a "Bahay Kubo," a house indigenous to the Philippine culture. The "Bahay Coral" serves as the home to the marine life around it.

“Ghost Nets"

Depicted on the artwork is a fish entangled in a ghost net. The vast majority of plastic in our ocean is abandoned fishing gear. An example would be "ghost nets" which is a danger to marine habitats and sea life. Marine animals are routinely trapped and killed in the commercial fishing industry's drift-nets.

"From Beast of Burden to Beast of Fortune"

The Carabao is the reliable partner of farmers. It is his ally in myriads of works in the field. In the artwork, a farmer and his Carabao are working hard alongside each other.
