Metallic Gel Pen on Illustration Board
A spirit free
Honored in flight
A people’s soul
I am Man, I am the people
God’s light liberated
To the consciousness of one people
I am man, I am the people
to be exhibited in the Art Expo Malaysia 2013
This Mandala is an Incredible
And the art-style & Design is amazing.
In my language Bayani is usually translated as 'hero' and Malaya is mean as 'free'. However, I also add that the root word for Bayani is "Bayan" or community / town / city or country, where as "I" means man. So bayani means man of the people. As for the word "Malaya" can also mean the Malayan people, to whom my people (Filipinos, Indonesians and Malaysians) come from
So this could mean "The Free People", "The Free Hero / Warrior" or even "The Free Malayan People"
I also see that you too have the knack for beautifully colored and detailed work
I too am very enamored by your beautiful portraits. I wish I had the time to sit for a long period and look at them
very delicate and glowing.
I like it when you come back to "my" world of mandalas sometimes
can you tell me what does the writing meen?
The words I used are actual nonexistent, since they are combinations of of Tagalog words, to give a new meaning
Such as the phrase Tayo'y Dangalayan, which is a combination of Dangal (honor) and Laya (freedom) . . . hence it means that we are honored free souls
Bayani means "hero" and it also mean "man of/for the people" and Malaya means "free" or the Malay race of which the Filipinos, Indonesians and Malaysians come from. So the Mandala is about being men for the people, for the freedom of the Malayan people's souls
I draw mandalas, and you photograph them (flowers)
My apologies for such a late response. I did take a look at your site a few months back, but I have never gotten the time to come back to it.
I see no difference if one expresses their spirituality in the digital or traditional arts, as it is your expression. I am only saying this because you placed the word "but" to your introduction to your works. I just looked at your site again, and they are great. What program do you use for your mandalas?
Anyway, I have no website yet. I mainly use my FB and DA accounts to share my works, although I had opened accounts in others sites in the past. Maybe one of these days.
Hope to keep in touch,
Salamat at samuli,
The words I used are from my language Tagalog, but I have fused some words to create new ones and new meanings.
I will edit this work soon an post the rough translation
