Claude Tayag: Estampitas Mahal na Birhen
Claude Tayag's limited edition accordion type book features his series of Estampitas, or religious images intended to be used as devotional picture cards. Aptly rendered in watercolor, Tayag's collection of folk Philippine santos imbibe the spirit and method of the anonymous Filipino craftsmen that originally fashioned these religious images. Each handcrafted book is signed and numbered by the artist.
Claude Tayag (b. 1956) is an accomplished painter known for his acrylic and watercolor landscapes and scenes of religious and folk imagery. He is also noted for his work as a furniture designer, restaurateur, and food writer for The Philippine Star.
