Pintang Laya: Edjop by Celeste Lecaroz

Edgar Jopson, a student leader in the 70s who attended to a meeting with Marcos in Malaca├▒ang only to be insulted as a “grocer’s son”. He was brave, intelligent, and a diligent son. In school, he excelled academically; became prominent as one of the great possible leaders we could have produced but lost in the martial law era of Ferdinand Marcos.

This is a painting of Edjop by Celeste Lecaroz as part of Pintang Laya, an exhibit of paintings for the benefit of Never Again: Voices of Martial Law, a series of plays.
