Joey Velasco- Sa Kambas ng Lipunan

Joey Velasco is a Filipino visual artist who dared to journey in a field, gingerly trodden by Filipino artists---religious art. His most notable piece is "Hapag ng Pag-asa" (Table of Hope), a recasting of the "Last Supper," where Christ shares a meal with hungry street urchins.

Joey's handworks spell wonder. I saw his exhibit twice and Im completely in awe while looking at his works.

** Joey Velasco died at the age of 43 last July 21.
