If one of your usual haunts is the Circus Posterus world, then you have seen the name or work here and there of Yosiell Lorenzo. Actually, if you look closely, you will see some of Yosiell’s work in collection shots of CP board members, but for those that haven’t been exposed to his world, I am here to help.
Yosiell, pronounced “Joe-See-Ell”, is a Puerto Rican artist raised in Connecticut. Best known for his amazing sculpture series known as “Sicklings”, one could easily see the skills this man posses. The sicklings are a nice 3D representation of Frustration, loneliness, despair, and so on. Their downtrodden slouch and sullen eyes easily can represent us all on our must harsh days. It doesn’t stop there, Yosiell also knows his way around paintings, ink, graphite, and more. Recently, his line of prints have been a hot commodity and becoming instant classics.
