Sofronio Y. Mendoza — fondly and better known as SYM — is credited with founding the Dimasalang Group of artists that converged in Sampaloc in the 1960s. As the old structures in Manila were fast disappearing after the war, the painters that comprised this collective (among them Romulo Galicano and E. Aguilar Cruz) trained their focus on architecture and landmarks in the city of Manila. As such, we have this piece by Mendoza titled “Luneta Night Scene” from 1975.
