Elito “Amang Pintor” Circa uses his own blood to create a masterpiece of Duterte with an official seal of the president and a Philippine Eagle.
"Bilib talaga ako sa kanya (Duterte). Minsan negatibo siyang magsalita pero parang kaibigan lang 'yan na naiintindihan mo kahit iba pa ang pananalita niya... Marami na siyang nagawa [I really admire him. Though he sometimes speaks negatively, he's just like a friend who you can understand even when he speaks rough. He has already done a lot]," Circa said.He added that using his blood signifies life and makes his masterpiece more special.
His mode of painting is no easy as he needed the assistance of nurse to extract his own blood.
"I asked a nurse to extract my blood and place it in test tubes so I could use it to paint," Circa told ABS-CBN News.However, the painting is not for sale as Circa considers his creation as priceless.
"I had to paint fast and keep the blood-filled vials in a refrigerator as the blood will spoil in a matter of days," he explained.
