There has always been a trend in folk genre among regional artists inspired by the example of Carlos Francisco. Strong regional centres of art in Luzon are the lakeshore towns of Angono, Tanay and Paete. The Tanay artists are led by Tam Austria in his mother and child paintings within the context of folk culture and his Maria Makiling series.
