Decade of Prosperity, Building the Foundations of Society
The year is 1930, the period when America is ruling the Philippines after it won against the Spanish. During this time, the Philippines Culture is heavily influenced by the American and Spanish Cultures. Our language, beliefs, cuisine, architecture, arts, fashion, government and society are greatly influenced by these foreign colonists. Even so Filipinos adapted these and even made them as our own. I painted myself living in this decade along with the girl that I love, both of us wearing the traditional Filipino clothings. We chat and walk along the streets just after we went to the church. The streets inspired by the walls in Intramuros, the Church inspired from the Catholic Faith Architecture and people are wearing clothings along various culture like the Barong Tagalog and Filipiniana by Filipinos, a suit by the Americans and even a Priests wearing his robe. The reason why I chose this decade is that because before the second world war, it is the period when the Philippines are shaping and building the foundations of the modern society with the help of Americans making both of our culture prosperous and fascinating.
