Barely a month ago, I posted an entry about an art contest conducted by LRT Authorities that featured Filipino life inside the train that makes public transportation in some areas of Metro Manila readily accessible.  View my former post here —>   PINOY ART & LRT .

Unexpectedly, it was still on display; so I got a chance to view the exhibit again yesterday at the LRT Araneta Center-Cubao station as I went to Gateway mall.  I’ve clicked my cam to note the titles of the masterpieces and the names of the remarkable Pinoy painters. 

Take a peek at the entries and see the frame that championed the contest as you scroll down this post. Enjoy!  


Daytoy Iti Biag Ko by Isagani P. Carlos, acrylic on canvas

If you’re a Filipino and you’re Catholic, you’ll surely admire how the artist of the painting below depicted our faith. 


Last Trip ni Sante, Kalong Munting Bro by Godofredo F. Zapanta, Sr., oil on canvas

The next entry gave me a smile.  As a father to our preschool son, I can relate to this simple art work.      


Kaagapay sa paglalakbay by Dean Mark Enoza, acrylic on canvas.

It’s nice to see Araneta Coliseum, the clock tower of Manila City Hall and Rizal monument in Luneta together in one canvas.  These places are reachable within 20 minutes via LRT…


Ayan na ang tren! by Marvin D. Gonzales, acrylic on canvas.

I like the use of primary colors in this abstract…


Sulong Pilipinas – Lalarga din Tayo by Patrick B. Fernandez, acrylic on canvas.


Agos Enerhiya by Joseph S. Domirez Jr.,  acrylic on canvas.


LRT, Kabalikat ni Juan sa Kaunlaran by Ronald L. Jeresano, acrylic on canvas.

And the painting that won GRAND PRIZE


Sakay na rin po kyo  by Mario B. Panis,  oil on canvas.

Hats off to all Filipino artists! Thank you for sharing your talents. Mabuhay po kayo! 😀

  1. It’s a pity that the government chooses to turn a blind eye towards our most brilliant artists and, instead, lauds people who create trashy things that can’t be healthy for people’s minds and souls!

  2. Though, in addition, the artists who did these paintings are simply super! It just irks me that they’re not given as much recognition as, say, someone like [ugh!] Carlo J. Caparas!

    1. i heard that news too, midge. and with the present government (who chooses the national artist awardees) those things aren’t surprising, lol 😀

      i so agree with your views. thanks for the comment.

  3. Ang ganda super. I stayed for about an hour and a half just looking at each painting. Sayang medyo madilim yung ibang paintings di nalagyan ng ilaw…
