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.

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

Being devoted to traditional style of acrylic on canvas, this is an interesting perspective to someone who has closely followed his body of work. Euphoric Ventures by Mr. S is currently on view at NOVA Gallery (Warehouse 12 A, La Fuerza Plaza), Makati, PH) from June 13 until July 4, 2015.
