Filipino American War
Bren Bataclan, Filipino American War, 2018. Acrylic on canvas, 36” x 24” ©Bren Bataclan. All rights reserved.
The Filipino American War was not taught when I was going to school in the Philippines or the United States. Painting text about the war help me learn more about it so as not to forget. Painted on this piece is a Sarimanok, a mythical Filipino bird, fighting with a bald eagle.
