Amangpintor "Lito" is always depicting the life of Pantabangan from the 70s (time where the town of Pantabangan was submerged by the water) to the present with the style of creating image of Minggan on every painting that he made. Pantabangan has sacrificed its land as it was drowned and made into a dam for the benefit of other towns by providing ample water supply for their crops. His ritual in painting is using his own hair as one of his medium on the canvas with his blood signature at the right side of the paintings. (from wikipedia)

(by Constantino C. Tejero - PDI Lifesyle 3/6/2017)

A folk artist who draws from—and is revered by—the folk community is Elito Villaflor Circa, the contemporary folk artist of Pantabangan town in Nueva Ecija.
