BLIC is a street artist based in the Philippines, who often uses the motif of a personified human hand in his works.
The artist enjoys involving the public in his practice, and through his hand motif, invites them to relate to his art.
The hand is a symbol representing the public, containing both a sense of universality as well as individuality – meaning, while hands are often a tool of universal communication, they are also unique in their independent storytelling abilities.
BLIC, deriving his motivation from the attention, curiosity, and even judgement of the public, is a member of the artist-group Pilipinas Street Plan, a group helping to bring the conversation of street art to a wider audience.
