Imagination takes a fancy in figures. And you will see that exactly in Mark Jeffrey Santos’ first solo exhibit titled Euphoric Ventures. Mark Jeffrey Santos, also known as ‘Mr. Sasquatch’ or simply ‘Mr. S,’ is a fitting title for someone who has fascination in bizarre yet creative dimension of a big dream.
As Mr. S believes that his art pushes the boundaries of his painting ability in the local urban art scene, he aims to bring a fresh look on how art takes part on the emerging urban art culture and other facets of his life.
The images of daily life is viewed differently by Mr. Sasquatch. His desire to create a bizarre world was triggered from his “Euphoric Ventures” and his fascination for his own high creative subconscious which translates to these dreamlike sceneries.
The effortless manifestation of nature plays an immense role for Mr. S, it is a place where his adventures transcends into a whole new dimension. Using peculiar characters of food which happily interacts with the surroundings, vivid brush strokes for intricate details of landscapes, smooth contrast of colors and tranquil balanced composition relives his connection with life. -Pat Frades
