Carlo J Caparas: National Artist?!?


And so I heard and I disagree! For me it's simple, I don't find him artistic enough. I am biased with my opinion, it is a subjective one. I am not an artist and though I have no credentials to say he does not deserve it, I would still say:
IN MY OPINION AND PERSONAL VIEW, CARLO J CAPARAS IS NOT DESERVING!

Her is the link of the other artists Arroyo named as such.

OK, so he is named as National Artist for Visual Arts and Film. I did not know he can draw er doodle.. and according to Wiki and IMBD, he has a lot of films to boast of. He directed, produced and wrote more than a hundred film. AND SO!!! Does the quantity counts? over quality?

Guys, I am really sadden and maddened by this event. To me it's like putting shit on our culture. Can you speak of Carlo J Caparas the same way you would of Lino Brocka? Me, I cannot..

And if you are looking for a more objective objection read this:

Carlo J. Caparas is not qualified to be named National Artist for Visual Art. I’m not sure if President GMA was aware when she gave this title, but Carlo J. Caparas is not an illustrator. For every single story he has written *another* artist worked with him to draw his story. Panday? It was illustrated by Steve Gan. Pieta? Also illustrated by Steve Gan. Anak ng Lupa? Illustrated by Nestor Malgapo. Bakekang? Illustrated by Mar Santana. Totoy Bato? The modern incarnation was drawn by Tor Infante. Kroko? It was illustrated by Hal Santiago. For every single published story that he wrote, another artist collaborated with him. -Gerry Alanguilan

Gerry Alanguilan have all the rights to object, after all he has been on the visual arts industry (read:comics) for more than a decade now.

Caparas as National Artist? oh no...

can I nominate myself? LMAO

He is deserving to be our national artist but I think sana sinama nila si mang Dolphy he contributes a lot in entertainment industry sayang di sya nakasama.

Jacris said...

I read about it and i can not help but to smirk. or smile..Hayyss..

I am not following you. Hope its ok

Take care

josie said...

hay naku it's really disgusting, imagine Dolphy who deserve most was overlooked, when will they give him the award? posthumous? I have watched some of the movies he directed in tv and I don't find anything artistic about them, puro commecials ang atake nya. money-making lang. ok na yung new Url mo sa blogroll ko.
