An autobiographical essay about the "author of the day" featured artist's identity, his arts and poetry.

Short Lived Publicity?

'In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes' "
-Catalogue of an exhibition of art in Stockholm, Sweden credited to Andy Warhol

Re-introduction

First of all am thankful for this bonanza (yesterday dated April 25, 2015) after being around over 3 months from my inception since January 11 this year. Iwas able to have 73 articles before this, close to 2200 nutpoints and some handful 114 followers of all sizes, gender and age from all known hemisphere. I am glad on my purple belt earned and erratic Star badge snatch. While I really don't know the exact limits and boundary of this once in a WIKINUT existence on this bestowed extra feature, except this has 24 hour expiration ... I knew it is sometimes sought by some who has no idea how to become one.

Nevertheless let me re-introduce my self anyway.

I used the pen name "Saigon" way back in college in some odd moniker to being anti establishment, nationalist and survivor.Harboring ambitions for a voice, actively used as inner language and covert sign of personal and political language...in retrospect to the radiant spirit that it represent to a small nation victory of its revolutionary heroism against the two mighty forces of imperial America and the shroud of communism. I well identified my struggles on the same path in real life politics and preservation of own identity.

Not counting the endearing "Pareng ED" tag, there were some num de plume I had on my literary adventure too, such as G.O. Lagat, ..and some years back a virtual nom de guerre JAMES TANYU each pseudonym were taken on different purpose it need to valorize or hide including regionalistic stereotyped alias KABAYAN. Nevertheless "Saigon" continued to compels its polar opposites to what they have known to commercialized musicale and face of worldwide refugees or boat people including the night bar of girlie entertainment I visited near Kamuning during the 1980s(sic).

After more than two 2 decades now I finally find peace to commune in this mask that some perverse it to be "enslaving, mongrel, decadent" stigma.It now represent a new strain of my being on every blazing my advocacy of the education-divide spectrum, aesthetic freedom and bliss of my own journey to personal happiness.

My Christian name days are numbered but I will remain to carry this handle as allonym to being your friend and comrade for life.

Now let's talk about my arts:

..above painting was my first try in charcoal some 4 years back,

My handwriting was as poor as my rare toys possessed in my childhood. I remember though trying to prepare myself to my first year of formal schooling I tried to draw the letters one by one to make it as neat as possible. It means a grueling few seconds and snail pace creation of every non cursive writing (full block) of the basic arithmetic progression.By the end of the page I will put some stickman as signature. I believe that was how I abandoned any hope for real mathematics and the start of my love story to arts and the end of my decent writing poseur. I let my left hand and my right brain have the rest of my life since then.

How I fared since then? Well, simply do criticize, marvel and grace some of my creations before this hand and mind betrays me as I age...what ever my mind had conceived, my skills have developed upon this gift I offer thee to the greatest ARTIST of all time and eternity-the SUPREME BEING that started it all.

Please have the pleasure in gracing the art & images around here and all other articles I used them purposely.

Arts and some fine arts...

(above was my first water color painting ever)

Saigon De Manila started drawing since his childhood (mostly ink, pen, or pencil) and writing poems for his university’s paper. He recently took formal art training under the mentor of the Filipino contemporary artist Hezekiah Lopez.

My Poetry

Saigon De Manila started drawing since his childhood (mostly ink, pen, or pencil) and writing poems for his university’s paper. He recently took formal art training under the mentor of the Filipino contemporary artist Hezekiah Lopez.
Saigon is also blogger who has written over 300 articles on different sites. He is a realtor, a teacher, and also a “Special Need” educator. He is currently living and working in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Readers could enjoy a unique cultural flavor in most of Saigon De Castro’s poems published in this book:
-Except from Wandering Clouds
A book introduction written by Viet Tran

Artist Dereliction

The prophet was saying odd things:
'The world we sought is ending!
He who reach for the light
will be burn from its might,
Faith is not needed but hope!' and he walked,
unshaken I folded my sleeves
eyes fixed upon the distance.
Artist alike would not bother
to hear his way. Chronicled
life stood greater than his wrinkles.

The test of faith is not foretold
Wither we may, crooked path we choose
The price we paid was less on every thing
We created that defined the oblation of it all.
Why we did not heed his call
Would not make me twice a fool.
For he who burned trying
was the right sublimial end
of the creative soul in our core,
long fuelling the flame that made us
separated us from a cave man.

Qui tenet veritatem?

What is reality today
Will be revoke someday
Truth is relative
Just that elusive
Never mind what others have to say
Just live to changes that might lead at bay
And walk the Earth like true master
You were destined to deal
And make that chances- real

Art Imitating Life...

Courtship At The Tea-farm

green foliage of hills on man's herbal haven
a secret blend that rival's your coffee
dawn breaks in streak of gold over the heaven
hustling mortals appears to earn their fee

as the morning kick in a lively throttle
no idle cupid will missed romantic pawns
this lovely day is another man's battle
to win his maiden joy he wants to own
