Two years ago, an art exhibition of Filipino artists was held at the Musée International des Arts Modestes in Sète, southern France. I got to know the event when I saw it being promoted by Telematin, a French morning show I watch everyday. Naturally, I got excited seeing my countrymen’s artworks shown on European TV as well getting exhibited on European soil so I thought I should share it with my Filipino readers all over the world.
Here are the images I took from the TV screen:

Works of 23 works of Filipino artists displayed were curated by Manuel Ocampo .
Ocampo, who has extensively exhibited his works in major art capitals around the world including Europe, Asia, and the United States, is on a personal mission to bring the Philippine art community on a par with its global counterparts.

It includes a figure of Ex-President Corazon Aquino sitting on a chair. Notice that her feet are suspended on air…she was a small woman.
The Philippines is a country ruled by Politics and the Church
But despite a lot of problems, the Filipino is renowned for being an easy going person.
With poverty, crime and all the problems besetting them, all the Filipino can do is to pray that their life will someday get better.
