“Philippine art beyond the capital in Manila and the country has flourished. And it is best to look at the art world as inhabiting multiple terrains. Specific locations outside Manila have produced a distinct array of images, processes, and even ethical modes of making art and responding to communities. In overseas communities, Filipino artists invoke the Philippines not exclusively within the limiting discourse of identity and nationalism, but try to converse with the concerns of a global, more cosmopolitan  context of art making.”

Patrick D. Flores

 

Mark Tandoyog’s works retrofit the anarcho-punk into everyday slogans on local politics. He also marks canvasses with pop satire that read as absurd more than the shock of conventional punk visuals.

. . .The rare union of “indigenous”and “punk”  informs his “making,” pairing pop and folk imagery, humor, and agitated sloganeering.

To Mark, his focus on dualities is more an engagement with his community as it assimilates to global capital. It is more than a strict philosophical construct in art-making.
