Performance, polymer mashup

Vinsantos on PCDaily

New Orleans artist, Vinsantos puts his hoarder tendencies to good use in his Kreeture series of assemblage dolls.

“I see the art that I create as a mash-up of sculpture, assemblage, fashion design, makeup, and hair artistry.” “I also see it as the reinvention and preservation of beauty. The characters found in Kreeture stem from my years on the underground performance art circuit. I’ve spent many years in the public spotlight either as a live musician, a Drag artist, and more often as a combination of both,” he explains.

Vinsantos shadow box characters can be seen at Tresor Gallery and you can follow him on Facebook.

        How wonderful! I love when you highlight other sculptural artists, especially new ones that I hadn’t heard of. This is a new one for me. What a thrill! I just love the theatrical appearances of these figures!
