Taking Over The World through Pinoy Musicians

As a follow-up to our Arnel Pineda post... how did/do Filipino cover bands end up as a major export?

Check out this excellent 2005 article from the New York Times Magazine.

wondering out loud, after reading the New York Times article, the "talent agency" acts like a clearing house for the export of Filipino musical talent. I wonder, how many "clearing houses" are out there that export Filipino visual artists.

just a curious query.

I would suspect, not as many.

Unlike musicians who actually have to perform on-site, visual artists can be contracted to do the work online nowadays.

That said, there should be a lot of outsourcing work opportunities for visual art talent.
