Sagada Art Works

Written By (sagada genuine guides association inc). on Friday, August 7, 2009 | 9:43 PM

There are so many kinds of art, hell, everything is an art, however, I have categorized them into different fields.

Paintings – the art of painting is kinda foreign to the Sagadians, good thing, we were blessed to have some residents who could have possibly introduced or influenced the local artists.
  • Mr. Borja – He is a respectful artist in many fields, such is canvas painting. He also does shirt printing and ethnic interior designs for house holds.
  • Mr. and Mrs. Memra – I’ve only known this guy to be music artist but he also does shirt and canvas painting and any other kinds of painting including huge walls and streamers.
  • Mr. James Wandag – the only native I know who paints canvases and shirts; he is more into t-shirt production as growing demands for tourism pushes him. Contact number: 09108123074
  • Mr. Tommy Hafalla– the only photographer that I know is. Since I grew up, I saw this guy photographing culture at work not only in Sagada but the entire Mountain regions or the North. He is a master of Black and White Photography. He also conducts trainings for the locals, teaching them not just taking photographs but developing their own films as well..
  • Gareth the Great – not to be out done my self, I can safely say that I exert the most effort in underground photography. As a cave explorer, I take time to practice taking photographs with limited light source. I conduct basic trainings for my co-guides, enabling them to produce great photos for their clients.
  • David Fowler – a local of Sagada from Britain is the only person I know who documents most of the communities events.
  • MRDC – I’ve seen these guys produce good videos as well
Wood Carving
  • Jaime Capuyan – This native of Sagada carves door and other flat surfaces of the wood into master pieces.
  • Conway Omaweng – during my child hood days, I can still remember my uncle smoking his wood carvings at “maidapeng.” His creations are displayed either in their house or at Bilig café.
