The art of Malang celebrates life, urban folk, and the fiesta spirit, and his abstractions of Filipino women sans the lugubriousness that other artists would rather add in depicting common folk. Bottle Vendor is representative of his countless icons of an idee fixe, a woman from among the common folk, with an elegantly long neck, posed in a world of colorful wares in bright colors.Of note, in Bottle Vendor, is the geometric crescent in the sky. Is it the sun or the moon?
