Every year, the world produces more electronic waste (e-waste) than the last due to advancements in technology that shorten the average life spans of gadgets and electronics. According to the Global E-waste Monitor 2020 report, the world generated about 53.6 million metric tons (Mt) of e-waste in 2019, a 21-percent jump from 44.4 Mt in 2014. It is projected to increase to 74.7 Mt. by 2030. What makes e-waste worse compared to most other types of waste is that, if not correctly disposed of, it can release dangerous chemicals like lead, mercury, and lithium, which are toxic to the environment, most especially to humans. Exposure to these chemicals can lead to life-threatening complications such as poisoning, immune system disorders, and even cancer, to name a few. Hence, it is essential to dispose of e-waste responsibly and in an organized manner. Not only will this help ensure human safety and health, but it will also help minimize the negative impact of its disposal on the environment.

The Dark and Light of Angel Moreno’s 7th One Man Art Exhibit.

A celebration of animals, flowers and fish, captivates the first painting exhibit in the newly open Dark And Light Art Gallery in Don Alejandro Roces Avenue in Quezon City, as they present the 7th one man Art exhibit of Angel Moreno last March 21, 2015.

Thirty pieces of his artworks mostly themed with his subject of coy fishes, sunflowers, roosters, horses, and tigers, are up on sale up to April 11, proceeds in each painting sold is given to Unilab Foundations, on their Play It Forward project as the beneficiary.



Moreno’s work is simply brilliance since he is painting in a very modern technique, not the usual art pieces you will see in some galleries, he is recreating the picture to come alive when you are looking at it, he simply called it embossed art that he admit a tough one to made due to layering of paints and colors. Mostly he paints by laying down in order for the paint to be perfectly assembled. His color combination using mixed media is something to look forward, a unique one I must say.

A bisaya in blood, Moreno aside from being a painter, he is also a multimedia artist who’s earlier talents includes being a film animator, and acoustic singer in different bars in Manila. Currently a resident of Quezon City, Moreno is an undergraduate of Fine Arts in University of the Philippines.


In our interview, he emphasize that most of his works is where his heart and mind, it can be notice through the evolution of colors he uses in many years, from monochrome  and now to a 3D portrait.
