A Malaya Designs X Bayani Art Collaboration.
It’s not an easy task to promote cultural identity and takes a lot more effort than you might think. Collaborating with other artists makes it a bit easier.
I have and will always promote cultural identity through my work with Baybayin. It’s what I know best and what I’m best known for. It’s a legacy I can leave behind for my kids to keep them grounded to their roots.
As long as people continue to look to their roots, there will be folks like myself and Bayani Art reaching out to the community using their talents to propagate, promote and educate. I’ve dedicated many years writing these squiggly characters providing something tangible for people to identify with and hopefully an avenue for more discovery.
The next time you attend a Filipino Festival, I urge you to visit with local artists and vendors. See and understand what they have to offer and perhaps even support them. Artists put so much of themselves in their work, even a small gesture of conversation goes along way.
