Garapata Man Invades Secret Fresh

Garapata Man, the multi-limbed character from Dex Fernandez seen ubiquitously from every nook and cranny of the city, from toilet doors, light switches, to fx cab doors and jeepney roofs, is fleshed out as a resin figure in editions of 20. This landmark collaboration between Dex Fernandez aka Garapata Man and Secret Fresh is to be launched this Sunday Feb 12 at 6 PM.

All Garapata Man figures come in sets of 3 composed of a gigantic rotund Daddy Garapata in Elvis coiffure and 2 baby Garapatas. All these shall be personally signed and numbered by the artist. 5 custom sets will also be released in cerulean blue, neon pink, black, gray and green.

The toy launch will be accompanied with an exhibit and sale of Garapata serigraph prints, shirts, button pins and stickers.

Plus live performances by electronic trio Gentle Universe and hard/space rock instrumental band Wilderness.

This also marks the inauguration of Gallery B, Secret Fresh's newest art space located at the basement of Ronac Art Center. This spacious industrial-themed art space is a welcome addition to Secret Fresh's ever expanding program and commitment to support and showcase current practice and trends in art and design.

Dex Fernandez recently came back from an artist residency in Vermont, USA. His created character Garapata Man was born from a childhood reminiscing of a wild and rambunctious cohabitation with beloved pet dogs. As a tribute, he sticks up and doodles these dandy-fied critters everywhere he goes as part of a DIY branding strategy and as an infectious manifestation of a participatory creative impulse.

For further queries about the event you may contact or call 570-9815 loc 7. You may also check out Secret Fresh on FB, and on
