Jean Vengua tends to change the artwork at the top of OKIR almost as rapidly as the escalating cost of the war in Iraq displayed on kari edwards' transdada.
I am taken by the mixed-media piece currently displayed, "Warning" by Filipino painter Santiago Bose who died in 2002. If the piece has gone by the time you go to look at it, it can be found here.
There's a bit more information about the painter available at this site, & a moving essay by Eileen Tabios in an issue of our own voice.
