Monday Mural - Holding hands

Another mural from the archives, from our visit to the Philippines in December 2018.
This mural in the Bonifacio Global City (BGC), was painted by Biskeg Pangasinan Artist Collective headed by artist Patrick Fernandez, and was painted for the ArtBCG 2017.

Entitled "Kapit Kamay", which Google Translate, says it means "holding hands" when translated from Tagalog. 

Maybe Stevenson from Cavite Daily might be of help with the translation.
The mural can be found at the Uniqlo C3 annex building on 30th Street, BGC.

  3. Oh Sami that is so nice and thoughtful of you! And google did it right again this time, Kapit Kamay does mean "holding hands" thus the English phrase HHWW or holding Hands While Walking translates to our KKHH or "Kapit Kamay Habang Humahakbang".

    Happy Monday dearest Sami and to all our Mural sharers!
    (I really really really hope I can share a mural post too! Have to go to Manila to find some soon :) )

  7. I agree it's a beautiful mural, but I'm somehow having trouble trying to understand the significance behind the painting and the name. I believe it's one of those mural paintings where the artist expects us to interpret it for ourselves. It's certainly calming and beautifully done.

    1. There are two arms with entwined hands, from the artist's website: "one person helping another. This is the driving principle behind the collective–older generations of artists lending a hand and bridging the gap for younger, upcoming artists". I hope it makes sense now Elizabeth.

    1. Thanks Joanne. Doing well thank you. That header photo was taken about 2 years ago in a Perth orchard, when we went to pick apples in Autumn.

  19. Dearest Sami,
    That is a nice mural and a meaningful one!
    Okay, onto my batches of each 4 chapters of Pdfs form my final Proofs. Looking so much forward to the end results, holding our books in our hands. After the graphic designer added the figures and tables to my text it started looking real. Had to buy a special Adobe Pdf for use on a Mac in order to be able to edit. Ongoing we have to learn and challenge our brain; which is good!
    Hugs,
    Mariette
