To The Big Guy

Yesterday the big man of the Cebuano art scene was laid to rest up on the beautiful breezy hills of Talamban. 

Sir Jethro Estimo was a big part of Streetkonect, he always supported the team's crazy endeavors for the local art scene, he seemed to not mind the cluttered composition of the group or the slightly crude post production of shows, he never seemed to mind that the things we did were a bit odd and sometimes random. 

He sat through those meetings, he sat through our bad jokes, he sat through our fleeting ideas, without judgment but with pure support and the desire to help or advocacy.

He wasn't just all brawn but all heart and wit as well.

We'll miss you Sir, we'll see you when we'll see you, maybe then we can have another crazy art show, but this time with unlimited beer and food. 

Here are some tribute artworks that we compiled from various artists.

"It was because we stood on the shoulders of a giant | His work captured every bit of the cebuano flavor of wit and humor. Dako mig pasalamat mga batan-ong musunuray ninyo sa art + design sa Cebu. Rest in Peace sir Jethro!" by Marc Abuan
"I think sir Jethro is ok wherever he is, doing tagay and deadlifts in one breath of stardust. Hi sir, thank you for teaching me illustrator and making fun of my Instagram compulsions. Don't make fun of this one, haha." by Monica Alcudia

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone

Wrap-Up Week-End

Garapata in Bacolod . Many artists from all over the archipelago went to Bacolod last Nov. 13-16, 2014 to participate for the Viva Excon 2014.  The art event is more of a traditional art event rather  than a "primary flight-ish" or !ha? but it didn't  stop street artists to do what they do best. Paint Jam by Soika, Buen Abrigo and    Cori Franchesca Co in Bacolod  Garapata Stop Over in Cebu. He painted with cebuano local street artists, Soika (a Viva Excon Participant), WR, Bart and CrazyMaggot. Free Anting-Anting . Sprouting in Talamban, Cebu City. Really nice to see street art in Cebu making a comeback with new talents. I thought the difference between Cebu and Manila is that the former ceased to produce new talents while the latter had an endless supply. I was wrong! Yummy in Busay. Yummy is Bart's younger brother. He is quite unique in Cebu, and has a distinct inking style. Dr. Karayom for ESC Project Escol
