Isang Pop-Up Bar ang bagong pinagkakaabalahan ng Kapuso actor na si Frank Magalona.
Ang kanyang naturang Pop-Up Bar na kung tawagin ay The Mind Fact ay isang hang-out place kung saan mae-enjoy ang mga drink creations ng aktor.
Sa The Mind Museum in Taguig City unang itatayo ni Frank ang kanyang The Mind Fact Pop-Up Bar on July 22, Wednesday.
Ipinaliwanag ni Frank kung saan nanggaling ang inspirasyon niya para sa kanyang laboratory-style Pop-Up Bar at kung paano lalabas ang kanyang pagiging artist sa bagong venture niyang ito.
“I like experimenting, whether in art or in my daily life, so my Pop-Up Bar is inspired by a chemistry lab.
“Every night is also an experiment for the bar-goer who likes drinking.
“In my Pop-Up, you have the option to mix my delicious black drink called ‘Kolor Proof’ using test tubes and beakers filled with high quality alcohol and other fresh ingredients.
“I also like music, and in my bar, you can produce your own beats using actual deodorant spray cans.
“It's the kind of place to have interesting conversations. This man likes to think, and on that night, he invites you to step inside his world.”
BRAND AMBASSADOR. Kaugnay ng The Mind Fact Pop-Up Bar na ito ni Frank ay ang kanyang pagiging brand ambassador ng Axe Fragrance Black na nagsimula noong April 2015.
Ayon kay Frank, “Our concept, since Axe Fragrance Black is refined in light, I put it as an analogy to light.
“The black pigment is composed of all colors. When you view it from different angles, you see different colors. Layered and layered and layered together and it forms a black pigment.
“These are the colors of Axe Black man's life: arts, music, and science. The glass board here that is filled with equations represents that.
“We used test tubes and beakers for the drinks. There are colored drinks too and artwork.”
COLLABORATION. Nagpapasalamat si Frank sa kanyang pamilya at mga kaibigan dahil sa katuparan ng kanyang artistic venture.
“I did a collaboration with my artist-friend.
“There's five of us in the team but there's only one art director, that's Raymond Gutierrez.
“Mond is the art director and PR Manager. I'm the creative director and I got an event stylist which is my friend the artist, Buen Abrigo.
“It's collaboration among all of us.”
ARTISTIC PURSUITS. Bata pa lang si Frank -- na panganay na lalaki ng yumaong OPM legend and Master Rapper na si Francis Magalona -- ay nai-express na niya ang kanyang pagiging creative sa larangan ng visual arts.
Nakatapos si Frank sa College of Fine Arts sa University of the Philippines kung saan nahubog ng naturang art school ang kanyang sariling style of self-expression.
Isang frugal lifestyle ang gusto ni Frank, at mga salvaged materials ang hanap niya para ma-transform ang mga ito to functional masterpieces.
“One day, I was forced to move out of the place that I used to stay in and relocate.
“I spotted these railroad tires at a gardening shop and turned them into a bed because I didn't have one.
“I didn't have a closet too so I used corrugated galvanized iron sheets to build one,” pagmamalaki ni Frank.
Aktibo pa rin sa paggawa ng teleserye si Frank at kasama siya sa malaking cast ng upcoming GMA primetime teleserye na Marimar.
