Albayalde’s version of Diaz depicts the weightlifter in her raw form, tired but strong. Wearing the elusive gold medal, she raises her fist up (as if holding the barbell) while her other hand clutches a bouquet of flowers. Digital art by Aaron Casco
Casco presents Diaz with clusters of shapes, particularly squares and triangles, in bold colors of red and gold. This artwork screams victory and happiness. Graphite on sketch paper by Christian Cabarrubias
The artwork not only focuses on Diaz’s success in winning the first Olympic gold for the Philippines but also outlines the satisfaction and cheerfulness on the contours of her face. Caricature by Jelay Santos
With coffee as medium, this painting showcases Diaz's winning lift at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Leaf art by Aldrin Jay Celiz
On a huge anahaw leaf, Celiz celebrates Diaz's win and all the elements that make it special – it is her and the Philippines' win at the biggest sporting event in the world. Digital art by Cesar Cueva
Diaz as Darna, as Cueva presents, shows the athlete as a hero to all Filipinos.
