TIUNAY, a Waray word which means “roots” is the title of Florence Cinco’s upcoming exhibit at the NCCA Gallery. Tiunay, according to the artist encapsulates the essence of all the artworks in this exhibit, which is the return of the Filipino to his great roots, the pre-hispanic Filipino race.

Cinco likens the experience of the modern Filipino to a journey. He believes that although he is caught up in the fascinating techie world he is in at present, he is now being called upon to uphold his own identity and abandon the foreign culture he has assumed as his own. TIUNAY is a call for the Filipino to take the first step back to his home – to his roots.

TIUNAY is the 13th solo exhibition of Florence Cinco whose artworks are known for his advocacy in promoting the richness of our culture and root race; environmental conservation; spirituality; and in embracing the simple lifestyle. He hails from Tinambacan Sur, Calbayog City, Western Samar. Cinco, a Fine Arts graduate at the University of San Carlos in Cebu City, is a missionary artist. To date, the artist continues to flourish as he reaps success one after the other in prestigious art competitions both here and abroad while doing his missionary work in the art circle.

TIUNAY is on view at the NCCA Gallery from July 8- 20, 2011. For this exhibit the NCCA Gallery shall be opened to the public Monday-Friday 9:00 AM – 5:00PM; and, 10:00 AM - 5:00PM on Saturday and Sunday. NCCA Gallery is located at 633 Gen. Luna St. Intramuros Manila. For inquiries you may contact Mimi Santos or Ethel Buluran at Tel. Number: 527-2192 loc. 512. Or email us at or visit our website:
