To state the obvious, Filipino artists are incredibly talented and they deserve more recognition than they are getting. During the quarantine, we have seen different passion projects from people who are slowly discovering their skills and talents in the arts. Thankfully, social media has made it easier for artists to showcase their work.
Some of them are also open for commissions so you could bring their art home, whether digitally or physically. Turning memories into art has been a rewarding trend for creatives. Here are some Filipino artists we spotted on Instagram that you might want to hire:
