Paper Craft

Wag Tularan (2018)
Corrugated Cardboard, 18 x 25 inches

Nearly 12,000 Filipinos have turned up dead on the streets since Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte’s induction in 2016. Early casualties of the country’s unjust war on drugs were branded with cardboard signs reading, “Pusher ako. Wag Tularan.” (“I am a drug addict/pusher. Do not be like me.”). Whether guilty or innocent of the suspected charge, victims never received due process prior to their crude execution. A great number of deaths still remain unidentified and unaccounted for. Wag Tularan (2018) was created with scrap cardboard– commonplace material that is now used to justify loss of Filipino life. The sculpture depicts the anonymous countrymen rendered disposable by the president’s extrajudicial policy. 

Ang Pambihirang Buhok ni Raquel. Paper illustration inspired by Luis P. Gatmaitan’s children’s book, “Ang Pambihirang Buhok ni Raquel” (“Raquel’s Fantastic Hair”). This project was completed for class at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts (2014).

Let Them Eat Cake. Paper carricature inspired by Sofia Coppola’s 2006 film, “Marie Antoinette”. This project was completed for class at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts (2014).
