Following its run at the UP Vargas Museum, 'Agos' by Antipas Delotavo is now on view at Tin-aw Art Gallery. The exhibition explores the bloody battle of the Basi Revolt, focusing on the fierce skirmish between the Ilocano and the Spanish forces at the Bantaoay River. 'Agos' is a critical reflection of the event as well as Delotavo’s interpretation of how different generations have lived through history.
Whilst the 14-feet painting 'Agos ng Ilog Bantaoay' will not be included in the Tin-aw instalment of the exhibition, three studies of the final work are on view together with all the other canvas works from the Vargas exhibition.
Antipas Delotavo (b. 1954) studied Fine Arts and Music at the Philippine Women’s University. Delotavo has exhibited his works both locally and internationally. He has been conferred with recognitions including the Thirteen Artists grant in 1990, Garbo sa Bisaya of the Viva ExCon in 2012, and the Araw ng Maynila Patnubay ng Sining sa Pintura of the City of Manila in 2005.
