Billboards in Manila have always been well, wrong. Aside from being obstructive and annoying, most of the designs have been either inappropriate or just plain ugly. Blowing up a magazine print ad with a lot of words into a three storey format only just distracts motorists. Billboards should really be created with the context in mind to be effective. Which is why I was happy to stumble upon this project called Outdoor Gallery. Very Cool. Very very Cool. I'll keep my eyes peeled for these amazing billboard public art projects. And props out to Pilipinas Street Plan. Your walls in Intramuros are amazing. So good to see alternate types of public art in Manila. It's becoming more than just bronze images of dead people now. Check out other shots of Manila street art here, here, and here. We walk/kalesa by these walls (below) during every Intramuros Walking Tour.
