KATIWALA 24/7 by Plet Bolipata
48×24 inches, oil on canvas (2010)

The painting depicts the struggles of Filipino Overseas Workers (OFWs), leaving their family and friends behind to seek greener pasture abroad. Per Plet Bolipata, the life they give up to serve others here and abroad is a life of self-sacrifice. The separation from their own families to co-exist with total strangers for economic reasons is a heartbreaking situation that is truly honorable and admirable. Very symbolic.

One of my favorite tents I visited yesterday @ Art in The Park.  They gave me the website to check their showcase and truly enjoyed it. Please check them out as I cannot get enough of their works:
