Captain America's Jeepney
“Captain America + Jeepney” is a piece that combines Steve Rogers notable superhero costume with the spirit of Manila’s jeepneys, which are rooted in decommissioned us military vehicles post world-war 2. The fun spirited piece has deeper symbolism - Filipinos love riding the American wave culturally, and the Filipino dream is even to move to America for many families. Is this too much of a colonial mentality and should we be more interested in our own unique culture?
Lately been integrating more of my Filipino roots to my art.
