Next time you want to remember the most memorable moments of your childhood, take a look at these black and white ink paintings by Kevin Sabino. He hails from Tangalan—the 5th municipality in Aklan known for its pristine beauty which nature has bestowed upon it and its people. As an artist, Kevin is able to capture some of life’s most wonderful moments with his beautiful brushstrokes. Painting became for him a tool for reviving his past experiences. He discovered that searching into his past and recounting his stories via painting is a challenging creative process, during which, he finds himself actively involved in remaking, reshaping, and rehearsing all of his past—the cliff villages, bancas by the river (boats), the big white house by the beach, kite flying, the lake, the sea village and so on.
