The rectangles and triangles of Vicente Manansala have made quite an impression on me. There is so much struggle in Filipino Art… these are some of the happier paintings of his that I have chanced upon :)

Ella Luansing and National Artist Daisy Avellana (theater), unkown production.
Front page of the playbill of Teatro Pilipino’s 1981 production of Albert Camus’ Caligula.
After taking his bath that afternoon, a young, white, handsome, tall and slim man whose body is hairless, face is well-shaved, feet has nice form, nails are well-trimmed, ears and bellybutton are clean and smell good, and penis is large prepares his clothes to be worn: white comforter briefs, white plain a-shirt, white plain running shorts and white knee-high socks. He wears them and sit in lotus position on his bed with white, clean bedsheets and white pillows. He breathes deeply and meditates to clear his mind.
He lies down, relaxes for a while, and put easily his legs behind his heads without hardship. His hands are holding under his back and his legs are placed under the pillows. He can breath easily and sniff his crotch that smells good. He kisses his penis that makes enlarged. He looks and concentrates his enlarged penis and his hands are holding gripped. After more than hour, his eyes closed and his hands are holding relaxed. He feels something wet and sticky and sleeps.
This guy is cool!
