A People's Artist



One of my favorite artists, Papo de Asis, died last week. To me, his paintings articulate better than words the conflicted history, culture, and hopes of Filipinos and Filipino-Americans. Agree with his politics or not, he always spoke (and painted) from the heart, and that's how I'll remember him. I'm honored to have known him back when I lived in Los Angeles. Rest in peace, kasama.
