Known for her whimsical clay sculpture pieces, self-taught Pat Frades’ (b.1993) immersion in the contemporary art scene started with her working closely with young emerging artists as a gallery assistant, occasionally donning a curator’s hat. Helping develop these artists and their creative practice inspired her to pursue her career as a full time artist.

Pat has always been fascinated with mushrooms and corals—its astonishing growth, strange beauty, and the way in which it co-exists with nature can now be seen through her art. Pat is a BSBA Marketing Management graduate from Far Eastern University (FEU) Manila.
