ok bro.. i met ivan roxas before.. in the birthday of lamarroza sponsored by heritage gallery owned by alex alcantara yata somewhere in 2005 i guess. i dont know if he could remember i asked him if he likes "heavy metal magazine" bcoz of his paintings that looks like a heavy metal magazine cover.. kasama ko dun sa event ay si paul gustilo isang abstract artist.

ah so you personally met him...good for you...i saw gustillo's work, very psuychedelic...im impartial of his work also :-)...anyways going back to the thing with ivan, ganyan kasi problema ko when dealing with artists sa country natin, madami akong kaibigan here sa cabanatuan, most are good photorealists, graduated aborad with honors, problema they do nothing but illustrate pop culture concepts...may isesend ako sayo na note tungkol sa global crisis ng mga artists which I happen to have researched thoroughly...

i got your note
MANIFESTO OF PERISCOPICAL ART
thanks
very well said
Im always a fan of William Blake both in Literature and Visual Art... in writing he is a lot better than Shakespeare who only copied in history and mythologies...in Visual Arts it chills up my spine.. it looks like he actually sees heavenly and hellish beings... sometimes I even doubt myself If Im really a painter.. Im even closer to comicbooks... comics and cartoons are the things that really taught me how to draw.. even before I entered pre-school. but now I want to transcend comicbook/graphic novel into a higher form of Literature and Visual art... something that is never been done by a Frank miller or Neil gaiman.. i dont like the Manga trend that is happening right now... let the japanese do what the japanese do.. the comics of Winsor McCay a hundred years ago like "Little Nemo in Slumberland" and "Dream of the Rarebit Fiend" is even much more advance than todays comics.
I am making a Bikol Graphic Novel right now but it would take years/maybe a decade to finish because I would like to feel the pain of the details of every page I make.
Back to painting.. I dont like what is happening in todays painting competition scene.. The Philip Morris contest is a little better than the others.. but there are still problems that i see. and making Art is not really about competing.. and the problem with post post modernism and post post structuralism is it cannot be truly defined "Sabog kun Baga" .. its only a Revival of what is already be done though changing a bit.. and in post modernism.. nothing really matters..

its claim of infinite meaning is just equal to no meaning at all.

the nihilism of this age is what troubled me...and this trouble i came to share with people outside our country like :iconjohnpaulthornton:, a revered friend of mine who actually shared my same symphaties...we call for a new song, a new dance, a new art...it seems artists of this decadent period have been clouded by their arrogance...they create art yet in creating they do nothing but nothin...it is DADA infused with psychedelia...nihilsim is the enmy...the spirit of humanity is lost

indeed...fyi, John is also one of the directors in LA's Department of Cultural Affairs...we were suppose to have exhibited as a group(IIAA) in LA this last april have it not been that the gallery we are to held it closed, but the core group, which include John also is planning one next year in Berlin at the Abnormals Gallery, where 4 of my digital works also will be exhibited in its opening sa oct 10...


john also wrote a book which is very much the Bibble of my IIAA...he has commissioned me 4 big drawings now in his collection...his missing children portraits are awe inspiring and touching


he deserves the award...its my honor to have him as my friend
