Did some live art over at the City of Man exhibit we had last night. This was something I wanted to do as a piece for the show but didn’t have the time to work on it, but figured it was a neat concept to try out as a live-art-on-the-spot-type-of-deal. Book me for gigs, guys. I can totally do stuff like this while you enjoy music from bands and socializing.
Concept stuff! I figured that Manila without the L was MANIA and that sort of encapsulates my feelings sometimes with all the things happening in this big city, the frustration, the anger, a bunch of stuff.
I asked a bunch of people for suggestions for things that feel manic or crazy in Manila and drew some of em like the billboards, MMDA officers, barkers, Anne Curtis billboards, the constant looming threat of death, the deceased animals on the road, the roaches, the traffic, the commercialism, just a bunch of uglier things around Manila.
