Pegged at a price of only P500 per 9"x12" artwork, you can own a Peace of
Art and support Zamboanga City's art movement for peace. Drawn by children
affected by the unfortunate 2013 Zamboanga City, they were taught by two
renowned international artists - famous Zamboangueño-Tausug artist Rameer
Tawasil and his Portuguese artist, Franco Joaquim, who came all the way
from Macau, where he is based.

An outcome of a collaborative noble project of our city with The Asia
Foundation and the International Organization for Migration, a 10-day Art
Healing Workshop was held at the Zamboanga City Coliseum from August 28 to
September 9 with a purpose. The art event helped the affected children
overcome the trauma caused by the siege and to look, express (paint) a
positive future. An exhibit was held later at the Zamboanga City Hall from
September 9 to 11 sponsored by Zamboanga City Mayor Beng Climaco-Salazar.

100% proceeds of the art sale will go directly to the children to encourage
them to continue their dream to be artists, at the same time, help them
also in their school expenses. And what will the buyers get? Studies have
shown that painting in walls have impact in their environment. This means
peace will transcend where you will hang your Peace of Art.

To view the paintings and buy them, contact Rameer Tawasil in his Facebook
account or contact him thru his Globe cp # 0906-8629372. Hurry unsold
paintings are scheduled to be brought in Singapore for an art exhibit.
