Responding to this phenomenon, Secret Fresh, which just recently moved to the new art and lifestyle hub Ronac Art Center, opened its second floor to a gallery showcasing the works from a broad range of emerging and established artists, who have continually dealt with the urban experience and/or aesthetic leanings that reflect and correspond to such an aspect of contemporary art, a reality that need not be ignored but instead welcomed for an increasingly dynamic art scene in the Philippines.
The inaugural show which opened last February 26 Saturday at 6pm featured the works of : Alien, Bjorn Calleja, Christian Tamondong, Dexter Fernandez, Egg Fiasco, Epjey Pacheco, Exld, JP Cuison, Nemo Aguila, Reg Yuson, Romeo Lee, Tin Garcia,Tripp 63, Whoop, Allan Balisi, Cos Zicarelli, Dave Lock, Dina Gadia, Ernest Concepcion, Ferdz Valencia, Gail Vicente, Jigger Cruz, Marie Jeona, Marija Vicente, Pauolo Vinluan, Pow Martinez, Robert Langenegger, Tatong Torres, and Vic Balanon.
This was accompanied by a launch of Christian Tamondong’s Paley Pils toy and limited edition print. Custom Paley Pils by Bjorn Calleja, Boy Agimat, Dina Gadia, MM Yu, Mariano Ching, Romeo Lee, and Wesley Valenzuela is also on exhibit.
There were live performances by Sleepyheads, Romeo Lee and The Brown Briefs and Tether.
Secret Fresh inaugural exhibit will be on view until March 21, 2011.
