CEBU CITY, Philippines— Cebu is a sprawling oasis of talented people.
It is therefore not surprising to see a talented painter displaying some of his works along the roads in the hope that more people can see and appreciate his works.
Arnel Salvacion, 52, is the talented painter behind the trending post of netizen Gee Quidet, who was able to purchase Salvacion’s oil on canvas painting along the National Highway in Sogod, North Cebu , on January 30.

Salvacion, originally from the city of Tuburan, has been a painter for 30 years.
According to his daughter-in-law, who is in charge of his Facebook page – Salvacion Handmade Oil Paintings, they also have exhibitions in Balamban and in their house in Tuburan.
“Usually display first namo maam kay sa Logo, Borbon then balhin balhin na pod adto sa Bogo City hangtud naabot mi sa Damolog, Sogod,” she said.
(Usually our first exposure was at Logo, Borbon, then we moved from area to area until we reach Bogo City until we reach Damolog, Sogod.)
Selling on the street is not new to them as it helps them get noticed by passers-by, much like Gee who was all smiles as he purchased a stunning piece of art from Salvacion.
The paintings on display range from P2,000 to P20,000.
