remixing a classic.
Tricycles, an amalgamation of a motor bike and a sidecar, is a popular mode of transportation not only in Iloilo but in various parts of the country. Lighter than the jeepney yet able to carry people and a few bulky items, it can zip through small roads, alleys and countrysides with efficiency and little upkeep, making this one of the more popular choices in towns and city outskirts. This is a sure reminder how we as people are resilient, adaptive to change and yes, pretty resourceful when it comes to working with what we have.
I love riding the tricycle because of the various reasons i listed above, as well as that strange “danger feel” — after all, that car or truck beside you is mere inches away and all that separates you and it is that thin sheet of metal that envelopes you as you whiz through traffic.
(This artwork is actually an old piece, done over a year ago. i was thinking about tricycles and this popped into my head to use again.)
