Art for Social Change
My dad partnered with the organization, to manifest concrete social benefits for Filipino Children through his passion; the art of sculpture. To make this dream real, he created "A Mother's Love"; a sculpture of a breastfeeding mother and her infant son, to commemorate the parental bond between two human beings. One relationship whose love is unsurpassable in society. Over 25 pieces were sold out during the first few months of the project, and a great percentage of every artwork's revenue went directly to the organization's funds. The purpose of social benefit or social change is a novel concept for the Filipino art community, but through this project, I realized that one can use any human passion for something greater than his own benefit. To this day, my dad still teaches me about the many facets of art that can be utilized for promoting life and welfare.
