IBONG ADARNA

The melodic tale of Ibong Adarna (Adarna bird) has enchanted the hearts of every Filipino through generations. Its origins can be traced back in the time of Spanish occupation in the Philippines , when this prominent type of poetry called korido had lyrical verses which exuded a rhythmic form of literature. Its basic story has numerous parallelisms from folklorists around the world, and embraces the universal theme of the triumph of good over evil.

This series re-illustrates this timeless Filipino tale to push its visual possibilities in the medium of modern Filipino abstract. JM Tejido’s signature acrylic on Hand-woven mats (banig) paintings take us weaving through the Kingdom of Berbanya, the princes’ perilous journey on Mount Tabor, finding the mystical Piedras Platas tree, and facing the creatures that abound the miraculous Adarna bird.
