Art works of visual artist Archibald “Jiggs” Pacana who were previously exhibited in UAE are currently featured in Mindanao’s biggest art exhibition so far.
Among his artworks in display are “Kamayungan Ang Pangalan Mo”, My T’boli Girl” and “Pängaläy | Janggay” whose inspirations came from the visual designs and production values he created for MSU-IIT Integrated Performing Arts Guild (IPAG), southern Philippines premier repertory company where he is a resident visual artist. The art pieces are part of his last exhibition, ‘The Women of My South’ in Dubai prior to the pandemic.
He is joined by other artists from Iligan City’s Studio One Gallery, Ninianne Sojor, Anna Leah Sanson, Cling Vega, Dominic Escobar, Edson dela Cruz, and Maila Secuban.
