March 2020 at Stranger Factory
Midnight with David Santiago
Opening Reception (artist will be in attendance):
Friday, March 6th from 6-8 PM
Solo Exhibition on display March 6 – 29th, 2020
David Santiago is a local figurative artist, known for his large scale work consisting of beautifully layered abstract portraits that contrast graphic lines with boldly structured shapes against soft feminine skin tones, often echoed in wood grains.
March will bring MIdnight, David Santiago’s third solo show at Stranger Factory.
For the artist, this show is a way to revisit the high contrast, black and white style that David first fell in love with when experimenting with charcoal.
His latest pieces, debuting March 6th, force one to get up close and personal with each figure. These dark pieces present an intimate opportunity to seek out the details in someone’s face, as if at night, by the shimmer of moonlight..
We are expecting approximately 15-20 original pieces for Midnight.
Good news for those who missed out on the debut release of Kathie & Brandt’s Midnight 4-Legged and Mini Masao Skelves at DesignerCon: the official CP release for these will coincide with Circus Annual at Stranger Factory, opening Dec. 7!
The 4-Leggeds are an edition of 66 ($250), while the Mini Masaos are a run of 100 ($65). Sign up for the preview here if you’re looking to pick these up. BUT, if the rare Midnight Mini with the GID mask is what you seek (they were an exclusive at Mana’s booth at DCon), keep it locked on the CP forum — the GIDs will be available through a lottery ONLY.
Circus Annual opens Dec. 7 with an opening reception from 6-9pm. Show’s on until the end of the month!
The Circus is gearing up for another whirlwind party at DesignerCon 2012 and this year promises to be bigger than ever! Rocking three booths full of your favourite CP artists as well as some of our friends from Japan, expect a ton of art, merch and exciting new sofubi releases.
But more on all that soon! Let’s talk about what’s sitting smack dab in front of us: Kathie and Brandt’s new “Midnight” 4 -Legged and Mini Masao Skelves. A beautiful translucent blue with silver glitter and classic cream masks, these will debut at DCon with a larger online release later in the year. The 4-Legged’s are an edition of 66 figures while the minis are a run of 100. Pricing to come! Keep it locked for more DCon release announcements; we’re just getting warmed up!
