0 out of 5



Mikaela S. Tingcoy is a 19 year old Tagum-based artist. She was one of those kids who would draw the famous rice fields and “bahay-kubo” scenery for art assignments. She has always been fascinated with colors and has a soft spot for arts and crafts. With her interest in arts, she joined summer art classes and school organizations related to visual arts to help her learn the fundamentals of creating art and improve her skills. She is currently experimenting with various mediums, primarily acrylic and oil paint. She is still working on developing her own artistic style in which she can freely and comfortably express herself. Expanding her knowledge and researching current issues is part of her creative process as an artist. For her, this could help build ideas and provide additional support for the message she intends to convey to the audience through her visual works.

Artist Statement:

Mindanao is a home of people with diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. This artwork portrays the celebration of the abundant indigenous culture starting from the music of the Maguindanao people with their main melodic instrument- kulintang, the Pangalay ha Patong dance of the Sama and Tausug tribes, and the Singkil dance of the Maranao people. Approaching interculturality also includes further recognition and preservation of the primordial culture in our society.
