His practice is also guided by a strong devotion to folk religiosity in Quiapo. Apart from winning paintings from national and international competitions, the exhibit also features his creative experiments weaving two canvases into mat patterns, his appropriation and face cut-outs of archival photos using different media, and his tragicomedy series. Curated by Renato Habulan, this special exhibition highlights Esquillo’s every aesthetic milestone
