Ladies and Gentlemen,
I have recently uploaded my series called "Diwa nf Sulu" (The Spirit of Sulu). This collection revolves mainly around the culture and history of the Tausug people in the Sulu islands. I have lived with these people, and fell in love with the land and their culture. In fact I have been adopted by a clan there.
These works were commissioned by the Sulu hotel in 2000 to 2001.
For all those who have given me a 'fave" and a "DA watch":
My great thanks to all of you, and I wish I could have the time to thank every one of you, especially for those who commented.
Unfortunately, I am very very swamped with my many responsibilities: in teaching, art making, environmental and human rights concerns . . . plus for the fact that I am maintaining 3 accounts here at DA.
Aside from this, I have my main account (lakandiwa) and the school account that features my students' works (IARFA). I wish to remind you that this account features my old works from at least a decade back, as well as the styles and media I explored then.
Once again, my thanks and blessings
Salamat (thanks) at Samuli (and until then),
Prof. Lakan Olivares
