An art benefit for the victims of typhoon Ondoy and Pepeng
“Tabi Tabi Po” was an art show dedicated to celebrating Filipino folklore through urban contemporary art. The Kapre, Manananggal, Dwende, Tikbalang, and Aswang are just a sampling of these haunting creatures that were brought to life in this exhibit. A percentage of the art sales was donated to the victims of typhoon Ondoy and Pepeng through BAYAN Philippines and BALSA (Bayanihan para sa Sambayanan).
