22/04/2022

Wala talagang forever.

For the final and concluding post to encapsulate the absolutely wonderful time that we have had during the ARTeCCA exhibit, here is a video-interview showing the group members’ thoughts and insights of our campaign.

Here, we see the trials and tribulations that they have experienced; from its conception, down to its ex*****on. We see the different viewpoints held by each of our members and the background of this truly spectacular campaign.

On behalf of ‘Musta? OKIENAM-an’, we would like to thank you all for your tireless and unwavering support. We couldn’t have done this without every single one of you who interacted and read our posts!

But as much as we enjoyed our time here, it’s time to move on to newer things. We have learned so much from you guys, and we hope that we had that same effect.

Until then, this is Group 1 – ‘Musta? OKIENAM-an’ signing off.

For the last — but certainly not the least — artform sharing today’s spotlight, we have what is certainly heralded and cherished as one of their own: Inabel Weaving. Its roots go back far beyond the thresholds of colonization, as this practice had existed even before the Spanish Colonization! Talk about consistency, am I right?
Rooted in the Ilocano word ‘Abel’, which simply means weave, the word ‘Inabel’ can be used to weave any form of fabric. To Ilocanos, however, the term ‘Inabel’ denotes the textiles that come from the Ilocos Region.

Purely known for its outstanding quality and varied designs, it is truly a cultural marvel to have this passed on, from generation to generation, withstanding the test of time above all.

While coupled with contemporary problems such as the general lack of raw materials needed for its creation as well as a lack of interest in creating handmade textiles in a world ridden with industrialization, the demand for this form simply does not diminish. Certain circles in fashion and interior design have made room for this culturally important artform, and we should too.

Let us empower our nation! Support our local artists and artisans, cherish their work, give effort to make them known — it is through us that we can rehabilitate our art scene into a much more valued and critical form.

Next on the line presented to you by OKIENAM-an, we have the PERFORMING ARTS. Of course, we can't talk about the Ilocos without mentioning its rich performing arts. It is ingrained in their culture, as seen by the numerous events staged across the region. They place a high emphasis on tradition and follow it wholeheartedly. It represents the people's geographical identity and asserts their place in the world. Despite their struggles, this art form exemplifies what it is to be born here, to grow up here, and to be taught its beliefs and practices - they are modest, tenacious, and can almost always see the beauty in everything.
Here we have the different performing arts that are celebrated across the region. Ilocos’ performing arts are mostly performed during rituals and celebrations or festivals.

That’s all for the performing arts, see you after a few hours, at 5pm, when the next art form is uploaded.

Following the first featured artform from posted, here is the second batch centered on SCULPTURES, presented to you by OKIENAM-an. Sculpting is an art form that is very common around the Philippines before and even during modern times; however, it is mostly on wood or stone mediums that we observe, and what’s astonishing from this art gallery is the presence of steel sculptures.

We have compiled different artists who have different art styles for you to truly grasp the variety present in art. Although in one art form, they’re all unique in their own ways. One artist fortes in sculpture while one managed to create an intricate sculpture after years of majoring in painting – another reminder that you can do it too! Maybe next time you’ll be our featured artist, who knows?

That’s it for this art form, see you ‘till the next one to be posted after an hour at 4:00 PM.

Kamusta ka? OKIENAM-an!

Good day to everyone! Let us first start off with one of the region’s common artforms, PAINTING!

PAINTING is an artform that can be found all around the globe and that of course involves the Philippines, where we would tackle the PAINTINGS of Artists from a specific region and that is Region 1 (ILOCOS REGION). This artform typically uses paint which is then commonly painted onto a canvas or other forms of mediums.

Paintings of artists from the ILOCOS REGION usually depicts their Ancestry and History along with their very rich culture. Each artwork is unique, none are the same as each other.

The following is a compilation of paintings of artist from Region 1.

A ‘Musta? Okienam-an’ EXCLUSIVE! The second of two in-depth discussions into the minds of the contemporary artists of Region 1.

The thirst for knowledge and wisdom does not stop its search in the wide array of blogs, posts, and news articles seen online --- sometimes it’s better to ask them ourselves! That is why our group sought out these artists, in order for us to know them, understand their motives, and to eventually learn more about the contemporary arts from the regions. Isn’t it exciting?

For our second interview, we had the opportunity to ask the ever-gracious Alger Guevarra on all things art. It gave us insights on how a contemporary artist operates within our society as well as ample knowledge into his life story.

We share this now with you, our audience, in hopes that you too get to learn more and perhaps even share your insights within the contexts of Philippine contemporary arts.
Once again, Alger Guevarra! Let’s give him a warm welcome and an exciting round of applause.

Good day, Kakabsat!

Are you ready for our first artist interview?

At first, we just tried our luck to maybe get in contact with the artists from Region I, not expecting anything, but here we are with Miss May Ann Licudine! There were no online video interviews made due to her hearing problems but we have communicated smoothly through Gmail.

We hope that you can get to know more about her through this QnA!

From the magnificent beaches of La Union, to the rustic elegance of Vigan, you are sure to experience the best of the best that this country has to offer. Not only is the region close to the Summer Capital of the Philippines (Baguio, which you can definitely go to after getting your tan in Pagudpud), it is also home to different tourist sites that house some of the most extraordinary views, both natural and man-made.

Maybe some of you have been to other places within the region, maybe some have not — even still, here is a list of the most sought after places within Region 1!

Take your time and encircle the places that you’ve been to. If you haven’t been to these spots, be sure to add them to your bucket list! Share this with your fellow friends and family — see what comes up in their bingo card!

𝐑𝐞𝐠𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝟏 𝐚𝐭 𝐚 𝐠𝐥𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐬𝐞...

On the northwestern coast of Luzon, lies the hidden wonders of the Ilocos region that we have yet to discover.

Seen amongst our view are the wondrous worlds that our artists have concocted; all connected by geography, culture, and history. These artists are only mere examples of the contemporary artists that lie within the Ilocos region — artists that, above all, should be cherished and nourished by our community and our nation. There are certainly many, many more within the art circles present with Region 1: artists that we should actively seek to discover and value. If these artists present already have much to offer, what of those that have yet to share their spotlight?

A surfer by day, artist by night; another ingenious artist known as…

𝐀𝐥𝐠𝐞𝐫 𝐆𝐮𝐞𝐯𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐚

He is a Bataan-native, but when he was an adult he decided to move to La Union, where he developed an enthusiasm for surfing. Through his surfing adventures, he saw an increasing amount of plastic littering the shoreline such as slippers or, as we know it, tsinelas. In 2015, he came up with an idea to use tsinelas as a medium, he did it by grinding rubber into very fine powder that is then filtered and mixed with a liquid emulsifier. The end product can then be brushed onto the canvas showing the vivid colors of the tsinelas. His medium was inspired by the old masters who would make their own pigments before commercial paints were available for the mass.

𝐖𝐡𝐨'𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐀𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐬𝐭? 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐑𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐚𝐥

Without any more delay, here is the next innovative artist — someone who uses recycled styrofoam as his medium.

𝐉𝐮𝐚𝐧 𝐄𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐢 𝐓𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐬

He is a self-taught artist that developed a medium using diluted recycled styrofoam dubbed as styro art. His works were influenced by Kadinsky, Van Gogh, Miro, Mattise, and Munch as seen in his styrofoam paintings that are intricately detailed and carefully intertwined to form mosaic-like artworks. Tulas’ artworks reflect themes of nature, motion, camouflage, underwater scenes, aerial landscapes, floral, microscopic images, and personal experiences.

2) Juan Elani Tulas (b. 1978)
The Rainmaker, 2012

The God hearing our chants, “Rain, Rain. Come Again.” Please bring forth rain during this dry period.

Kadinsky, Van Gogh, Matisse, Miro, and Munch.
Wow! These are the artists I look up to!
Their artworks influenced me a bunch.
So, I drew and drew until I grew.

Until I developed a new medium.
This can be seen almost everywhere.
Deep inside our houses, deep inside boxes.
It comes with the bought or gifted wares…

𝐖𝐡𝐨'𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐀𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐬𝐭?

Bullied, mocked, and physically attacked,
Just because she differed from the pack.
Lost, quiet, and alone,
Pen and paper is where she felt at home.

In art she found her voice,
Erasing any limits to her choice.
Sketches on paper, Paint on canvas, Digital art, Sculpting…
There’s just no stopping in what I do.
