This painting aims to encapsulate the seemingly eternal struggle of the common Filipino. But no matter how hard and gruesome the obstacles that come their way, time and time again, Filipinos have shown how quick they are on their feet, how they adapt to the changing times by being resourceful in creating solutions. It also mirrors the harsh truth of the Philippine society. Flash floods are occuring at a regular basis, most Filipino students are forced to do hard labor to support themselves, and many other issues that are prevalent in the present times.
