ALamat ng bawang
5th solo exhibition and children’s book launch
Oct. 17-31, 2009
1/of Gallery Serendra, Taguig Philippines

--------------------


Jomike Tejido’s paintings weave into Alamat ng Bawang, a timeless Filipino tale of how garlic came to be. Having had four previous exhibitions mostly themed with abstract nature themes, JM Tejido’s renditions on hand-woven mats now include human figures in its dreamy landscapes that compose the illustrations for a picture book.

The story, written by Segundo Matias Jr, has elements in traditional Filipino folklore such as the bahay kubo, forests, datus and townsfolk that aptly intertwine with JM Tejido’s distinct Filipino style.
