Pat Frades (b. 1993) is a self-made art curator and visual artist known for her whimsical polymer clay sculpture pieces. Her body of work comprises dainty lifecasts of hands, feet, and mouth, perched on top of raw wooden bases and each made more offbeat by the bursts of bright-colored blooming mushrooms. Pat has always been fascinated with mushrooms— its astonishing growth, strange beauty, and the way in which it co-exists with nature. She completed Marketing Management at Far Eastern University and worked with emerging and established artists as NOVA Gallery Manila’s in-house curator.
