Music, Baybayin Art & the Dancing Lolo

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to do live chalk art at the tourist filled Union Square in San Francisco. It was a Filam music and art event put on by Kularts. What makes this significant is that Baybayin was seen by thousands of people all over the world. They now know that Filipinos have a writing system.

I did 2 pieces. 1 was the lyrics to Bawat Bata by Apo Hiking Society and a proverb “Kapag walang tiyaga, walang nilaga”. After I completed the Baybayin art, the public was invited to add to my artwork.

Music by Cassandra Farrar and character mural by Paolo Salazar.
