WATDAFAC TOYS

TOY SCULPTOR

Short story : Watdafac started as an “art gallery”/platform run by artist Manuel Donada from 2011 to 2013 that focused its energy to promote the so called “Art” in its many aspects and faces with exhibitions, events and publishing books. The Gallery was mostly influenced by punk, comic, illustration, Pop culture imagery and the Art Brut. After a long hiatus, it has turned now into an independent handmade toy factory. This was an inevitable new adventure.
