Whenever a Filipino is assigned to do a task, employers can rest assured know that the task is as good as done – as Filipinos have what they call a ‘diskarte’ or their tactical plan to finish something in the most efficient possible way.

This ‘diskarte’ is kicked up a notch for creative Filipino minds who manage to channel their imagination and thoughts towards making breathtaking art forms in a myriad of ways – visual arts, music, dance, films, photography, and more. One of those brilliant, creative minds lie in Dubai-based sand artist Nathaniel Alapide, recipient of the 2018 TFT Awards Artist of the Year, whose works were recently featured in an Italian National Media.

An unforgettable feeling

Alapide recalls that he was exhilarated when he learned that he was nominated for the award and the feeling became unforgettable when his name was called up on stage. “It’s one of those moments in my life that I will never forget. My loved ones back are very happy and proud when they heard the news that i won the award. It definitely has inspired me to continue doing my craft and hopefully I get to inspire others to follow and do the things that they love,” shares Alapide.

With his masterful hands at creating huge sand art across the shores of Dubai, his works were noticed by Italian National Media’s news and features show, Today Tv2000 where he was interviewed to learn more about his creations. There, he shared his ongoing success of creating sand art for the masses, one of which he dedicated for his loved one. “My favorite is the “Tree” that I made as a tribute to my loving Grandmother,” said Alapide during the interview.

Ripples of positivity

Alapide shares that Filipinos should follow their hearts in doing good things that benefit not just them but the people that surrounds them – creating ripples of positivity that emanate from the genuine smiles from the masses who see their work.

“Always follow your heart and do the good things that make you feel alive because the people around you will benefit from it too. It will affect them positively in ways that you could never imagine and it will spread around… and once it does, it has a potential to make the world around us a little bit better,” shares Alapide.
