Manila, Philippines: Underpass Art in Makati City



Makati City, the business district of the Philippines has been my work territory for almost a decade between 1993 and 2002. I have also lived half of my time in Manila in Makati near Pasong Tamo area now Chino Roces Avenue. My last residence however was in Wack Wack, Greenhills in Mandaluyong City (just beside Makati City).

This is the Legaspi underpass.
So Makati has always a very special place in my heart. I always felt like coming home whenever I visit, but not last December though. Read here: Manila Musings from the Taxi

On New Year's Eve sister and I went to the Ayala Triangle because I know for sure there is a Christmas lights show there. I will post my video and pictures another time as it takes so much time to upload videos. In order to get there, one has to go through the underpass crossing Ayala Avenue. There are 2 underpasses in this area of Ayala Avenue and these are the Legazpi underpass and the Makati Avenue (corner Ayala Avenue) underpass.
I really liked that they have upgraded the underpasses with some mural art. I read that this was a city project which was launched with the help of some corporate sponsors. They were able to commission a few artists to paint the murals. Most of these paintings have themes which are advertising in nature. I personally have not seen the underpasses with product advertising themes because the ones I saw were the Legazpi and Makati Avenue underpasses which seem to have random art subject matter painted on them.
