'Tigbakay'

Year: 1994
Size: 20 x 26 1/2
Medium: Acrylic, Collage on canvas

The title refers to an illegal cockfighting game in the urban setting. Certainly the painting will not inspire strict politicians. But this gambling game is no poorman's vice but a sport with elevated status. Mostly, though, this is a cultural pastime among common folks. The painting portrays a player with provincial demeanor, poised in a squatting position and ready for a bet.
