Ang Kiukoks success stems mainly from the honesty of his art. It is one of Ang Kiukoks strengths that he never allowed himself to be bulldozed by the publics whims. Kiukoks paintings serve as reminders to a society where integrity and moral rectitude receive more lip service than practice. Ang Kiukok continues to be a respected but enigmatic figure in the Manila art scene.
