Haruka Furusaka creates watercolor prints by using a Japanese traditional woodblock printmaking technique. She uses natural soils from the surrounding environment as color pigments. Her work tries to explore the possibilities of making use of the contemporary printmaking practice to advocate for the environment. In 2012 and 2013, she facilitated an environmental education program in Mountain Province in which she worked with students to make their own woodcut picture book using local folklores that they heard from their families.
Anjo Bolardo is a self-taught artist whose works have been showcased and exhibited in several international venues. He calls his illustration style “Sukiyaki-Western” (coined from Tarantino’s film Sukiyaki Western, Diango). It is a marriage of Japanese art, Western street art and low brow illustrations. He is a member of 98B COLLABoratory. In January 2014, Anjo facilitated an art training workshop for grade school teachers in Sabangan.
This talk is co-organized by Cordillera Green Network & 98B COLLABoratory with the kind support from the Japan Foundation, Manila.
