Mr. Pancho M. Piano a stained glass artist, abstractionist, muralist and a multi-awarded filipino artist

“I want my art to be a way to bring the beauty of the Bicolano culture, and the Filipino people in general, to the forefront. When people look at my work, I want them to think, reflect, and appreciate the beautiful culture that we have. When l was in high school, the fishermen in our barrio would ask me to paint artworks in their fishing boats. In exchange, they would give me fish that they had caught. Being an artist is kind of like being a fisherman-sometimes the catch is plentiful, sometimes there’s almost none. As an artist, it’s important that we get to share our talent with the next generation. It feels good to know that you’ve helped someone become the best they can be with your assistance.” ~Pancho Piano
One of the most beautiful paintings of Mr. Pancho Piano
Mr. Pancho Piano (a stained glass artist, abstractionist, muralist and a multi-awarded Filipino artist) just had a Bloggers Meet & Greet event and Live Sketching demo on last June 14, held at the Coral Wing Lobby of Okada Manila. It was such a privilege and appreciation of the artistic creations of Mr. Pancho Piano. 

Piano feels it’s a little easier for newer artists to make a name for themselves because of social media, which wasn’t around yet when he was just starting out. But, he is very happy with the way that artists-~and art, in general, is being treated nowadays. He said there’s more respect for artists and artwork, and even art collectors are more passionate these days. 

Mr. Pancho Piano's award includes:
  • Most Outstanding Bicolano Artist 2009
  • My City My SM Award 2010
  • Orgullo Kan Bikolano Award for Visual Arts 2011

Pancho M. Piano is a poet of Bicol Southern Tagalog Region. A faithful son of Kabikulan, he has paid homage, in his numerous paintings in oil and acrylic, to the myths, legends and traditional of Bicol, its indigenous deities such as Haliya, the moon goddess of abundance and fertility with her multiple breast, and Daragang Magayon in the folktale of ill-starred lovers, as well as myths surroundings the origin of Albay province. He has also celebrated in many forms the region’s festivals, especially that of Our Lady of Pe├▒afrancia water festival, the principal yearly event for the Bicolanos.

With Mr. Pancho M. Piano

I had seen some of his arts that is exhibited at the Retail Boulevard, Coral Wing of Okada Manila entitled "HAGOD" which means a gentle stroke of the brush, it transcends the mere movement as the pieces created evoke more than just patterns and figures but splashes of memories that stirs the spirit and warms the heart.

Tanduay a Filipino rum has finally surpassed Bacardi as the Number one Rum in the planet

“Our distinctly Filipino rum is now the world’s number one...We have a great product to offer the world and the world recognized it. Only a visionary like my father, Dr. Lucio Tan, saw this when he acquired Tanduay from the Elizaldes in 1988. At a time considered very volatile for any business investment in the country, my father held on to the belief that someday the world will know Tanduay." ~Lucio “Bong" K. Tan, Jr., president and chief executive officer of Tanduay Distillers, Inc.

It was a cold rainy morning and I raved the traffic to attend the event at Century Hotel, Wednesday of June 13, 2018. We just made a history for Tanduay a Philippine-made liquor brand has been ranked the top-selling rum by global spirits think tank Drinks international from a list of international rum brands that has long been dominated by Bacardi. A Filipino rum has finally surpassed Bacardi as the Number one Rum in the planet. Drinks International has released the “definitive ranking of the world's million-case rum brands", citing Tanduay as the new industry leader followed by Bacardi and McDowell's No. 1 Celebration.

Tanduay Drinks
Since the acquisition of the Tanduay brand by the Lucio Tan group 30 years ago, plant modernization and expansion projects tremendously increased the distillery’s production capacity. Today, Tanduay has an unmatched aging capability harvesting only the world's finest from its aged rum reserve.

"We were the first to implement a nationwide music marketing campaign that brought Tanduay to a younger market. We were also the first local liquor brand to sponsor an NBA Team the Golden State Warriors. We continue to push further as we ride along an ever-changing market landscape now dominated by health-conscious. Athleisureloving millennials with the launch of Tanduay Athletics and a sponsorship of the Century Tuna Superbods. Both projects contributing a premium to Tanduay’s brand equity." ~Mr. Paul Lim, Chief Marketing Officer
