“Population” by Jomar Delluba
it was only today that i noticed the concept of the painting. Looking at it while we were at the exhibit, I was blown by the way the baby was drawn. Feels very real. If I can remember it right, I was staring at it for more than 10 minutes, but it never crossed my mind that there’s much more to this painting. while looking at its photo, now I realized that the baby is lying on the Philippine map.
They said Population is an asset . Oh well, Isang positibong simula ng Pebrero sa lahat!
We saw this painting in the exhibit held at SM Megamall, it was the celebration of the 9th year of Galerie Joaquin Group . I was with Alex and Emerald, fellow CUK scholars, fellow Radio DJ’s hahaha.
I wish there will be more exhibits like this in the Philippines. Something we should be jealous about from the art inspired streets of Hongdae, Gangnam and Samcheondong in South Korea.
