An artist from San Jose City uses a different type of technique to draw his artwork. Elito “Amang Pintor” Circa uses his own blood to paint President Duterte masterpiece.
The artist believes that using his own blood to create his artworks symbolizes life. “I asked a nurse to extract my blood and place it in test tubes so I could use it to paint,” Circa told to ABS-CBN News during his interview.
“I had to paint fast and keep the blood-filled vials in a refrigerator as the blood will spoil in a matter of days,” he said.
He choose Duterte to be his newest subject because he was satisfied with the President’s current performance.
“Bilib talaga ako sa kanya (Duterte). Minsan negatibo siyang magsalita pero parang kaibigan lang ‘yan na naiintindihan mo kahit iba pa ang pananalita niya… Marami na siyang nagawa [I really admire him. Though he sometimes speaks negatively, he’s just like a friend who you can understand even when he speaks rough. He has already done a lot],” Circa said.
He also made a painting using the same style for Senator Manny Pacquiao and members of Circa family. In case you want to buy some of these amazing work of arts, Amang Pintor said that his masterpieces are priceless and not available for sale.
