Yosiell Lorenzo

Recap: SUBTERRANE @ Stranger Factory, 11.9

  • by

Hot on the heels of the DesignerCon hustle, the CP crew packed up and hightailed it back to Albuquerque to prepare for SUBTERRANE at Stranger Factory — a group sculpture show featuring new works from emerging 3D artists Carisa Swenson, Yosiell Lorenzo, Shing Yin Khor, Valency Genis, Shea Brittain and Melita Curphy … the majority of whom also attended DCon! With almost all of the artists in attendance (we missed you, Melita!), the reception was a riot and a sugar-laden one at that, thanks to our friends at Rebel Donut.

SUBTERRANE is on display through Dec. 3rd and works can be viewed here. A full gallery of the evening’s tomfoolery awaits you after the break.

The Stunning Skills of Yosiell Lorenzo

  • by

If one of your usual haunts is the Circus Posterus world, then you have seen the name or work here and there of Yosiell LorenzoActually, 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.

We can’t wait to see what Yosiell has in store when he brings some of  his new creations to  Stranger Factory’s “Subterrane” group sculpture exhibit coming Nov. 9.


Stranger Factory Presents: “Subterrane” Group Sculpture Exhibit, 11.9

Opening next month at Stranger Factory is Subterrane, a group sculpture exhibit showcasing the talents of six of the industry’s most promising emerging sculptors. Follow Shing Yin Khor (Sawdust Bear), Carisa Swenson (Goblinfruit Studios), Melita Curphy (MISSMONSTER), Valency Genis, Yosiell Lorenzo and Shea Brittain (FrankenFactory) as they take us for a trip down the rabbit hole to experience a world inhabited by creatures that lurk in caves and crevices which fall just beyond the sun’s reach.

The exhibit also presents an interesting dynamic in that we have the opportunity to learn a whole lot more about ourselves from these creatures. Through sculpture, the artists are able to express complex emotion without the distraction of the familiar human face. Denied the comfort of what we’ve always known, we’re stripped of our preconceived notions and offered the chance to confront the artists’ intent without influence. We’re then able to see more clearly how love, anger, joy, sadness and loss shape and define our own inner creatures.

Subterrane opens Nov. 9th with an opening reception from 6-9pm. A number of the exhibiting artists will be in attendance!

Hit the jump for more sneak peeks from the exhibit!
