ARTIVISM painters Iloilo City 2018 v1

ARTIVISIM: public art with a social impact

there’s art
on the streets

over every
broken wall
we see ourselves

in paint

there’s art
on the streets

in every
broken leaf
(or the dirty sea)
we see ourselves

we paint

there’s art
on the streets

in every broken
promise, bone, and secret
we see ourselves

we are paint
