September 21, 2013 | 9AM - 6PM

ESCape Projects deal with spatial negotiations, transformations and interventions. It revolves around particular locations, contexts and renditions—whether as flights of the imagination or discharges of the creative spirit. ESCape artists are given the freedom to conceive and visualize new landscapes. To ESCape is to create a 1 day project, 1 day show, 1 day exhibition. It is a new model which evolved from the parallel events we have initiated in the 98B Saturday Market X Future Market @ ESCOLTA. It is an experimental platform for creatives.
Garapata, who was known early in his career as KRAYOLA EATER, has been an active member of Pilipinas Street Plan since its inception. In 2006, he began making wheat-paste posters. Currently, he uses stickers as his primary medium. He is also presently preoccupied in creating Garapata merchandise such as tote bags, tshirts, zines and toys. Last 2012, he launched a vinyl toy in Secret Fresh.
Jerel Limayo graduated from the University of Santo Tomas with a Bachelor of Fine Arts major in Advertising degree. He is a multi-disciplinary artist with a taste for the obscure and the abstract. Being exposed to painting, drawing and photography since childhood, he is now currently exploring the kinetic forms of art: video, sound and music. His music production style draws inspiration from video games, hip-hop and electronic sounds/gadgets. His goal as an artist is to be able to immerse people in another world through sound. He is currently a member of the Group Artists of Taytay and is fond of collecting vintage items and memorabilia.
