College of Holy Spirit student wins grand prize in UST painting contest

A FINE arts student of the College of the Holy Spirit bested other participants from key fine arts school around Metro Manila and environs to win the grand prize in the 2010 UST On-the-Spot Painting Competition.

Kathleen Yeo won for her painting, “Basta Maprotektahan,” a whimsical image of a mother and child whose faces were blotched out, with a sapling between the two figures holding hands. The painting answered to Galleria Duemila owner Silvana Ancellotti-Diaz, the chairperson of the board of judges, said the work showed “the disintegration of the Filipino family, with mothers leaving to work abroad.” She added, “It has the naïve, childlike style of Swiss painter Paul Klee.”

Yeo won P 40,000.
