One of the most recognized names in modern Philippine art is Oscar Zalameda. The iconic modernist has forged an alluring brand of cubism that melds a myriad of stylistic approaches into a powerful, distinctive brand all his own. Here, Zalameda combined solid and more transparent colors to enhance the dynamic subject's instantaneous quality. It has a strong rhythmic quality where he delineated each facet by using different but related geometric patterns and color combinations.

The fluidity of motion is maximized. All of the abstracted details have a sinuous development, the picture is filled with a sense of movement, and Zalameda’s abstractions often alluded to weightlessness. He distributes the graduated planes of the surface and the areas of light and shade in rhythmic patterns.
