The powerful manner that characterizes Elmer Borlongan's work is the mixture of stylized expressionist figures set in the most minimal of backgrounds that emphasizes a brief narrative. His works often tell tales about survival, persistence, light hearted fatalism, and the witty affronts of people as they wage through the intricacies of a post-industrial age with a hangover from centuries of imperial colonialism and neocolonialism. This painting depicts a puppet master trying to earn a living as a street performer.
