Sabayton Figurine by Louie Cordero

Local popular culture has become very diverse and progressive recently, probably because of the internet age. It has become more interesting and eclectic day by day. The likes of Ramon Bautista, Lourd de Veyra and Jun Sabayton have paved the way for intelligent talents to breakthrough the conventional local stardom. And to establish that even more, recently, artist Louie Cordero has launched his Sabayton Figurine which is a direct interpretation of Jun Sabayton's public character, an ignorant middle-aged Filipino, who's almost always annoying and hilarious at the same time. We are sure though this is not his real identity, however, it's amazing how Jun with his colleagues created this rather simple image that became so successful. It is about time that local popular culture become more sensible and interesting through intriguing and intelligent entertainment. The figurine was released last August 23, 2014 at Xbesitzer Art Gallery, if you are interested contact 0915-380-5172 for inquiries.
