An expat friend moved to Manila a few months ago, and I accompanied him to buy paintings for his apartment. I brought him to Malate, a district of Manila---through a narrow alley that houses a row of makeshift art galleries. It's a treasure trove of artworks painted by local artists.
We even caught an artist-in-residence painting a school of colorful fish in acrylic. These paintings sell from $70 to $200 each---a bargain, according to my friend.

Ang gaganda! I love the rural scenes. :)

Those paintings are beautiful. I really am impressed that their are many Filipinos who are very talented but they don't have no place to show off their works. I hope that the Barangay or City government will support them by showcasing their art in a public place where people from all walks of life could see them and then buy it. That painting depicting four boys caroling Love it!!! ^_^
Wow beautiful paintings like it.
