On National Day, Filipino Painter Shows Off Hand Painted Pouch Featuring Shk Mohammed

While many of us are celebrating the long holiday unproductively, this Filipino artist has been busy hand-painting a pouch featuring Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai.

Elton Lipanta, a Dubai-based artist, posted his craft during the 48th National day with the leader’s hand-painted photo and an excerpt from one of his tweets in 2016: “What makes us proud is not the height of our building, but rather the openness and tolerance of our nation.”

According to him, the ladies’ pouch is no longer up for grab as an “unknown buyer” has already bought it.

Lipanta has been painting bags and other souvenirs for dignitaries and Filipino celebrities who come to UAE.
