About the Artwork
Mark Jeffrey Santos’ art thrives in an alternate realm of fictional and surreal dreamscapes. The adventures of his signature wide-eyed character, Mister Sasquatch, beckon viewers to rediscover the joys of youthful wonder. In Ang Pusang Kartero, a giant feline friend accompanies Mister Sasquatch on his whimsical journey. The artwork is the inspiration of the children’s book of the same title written by Genaro Gojo Cruz and illustrated by Santos himself.
About the Artist
Mark Jeffrey Santos is a pop surrealist painter who took BS Multimedia Arts and Sciences at Mapua Institute of Technology in 2007. This is where he began his journey in the creative industry. He studied various art forms, from traditional to digital. He also focused on photography, graphic design, and film and video. Unbeknownst to him, these explorations will be his stepping stone for a flourishing career in the visual arts.
Most of his works are focused on his fascination with Japanese culture and his fondness for sushi. Mr. S or Mister Sasquatch is the main character of most of his artworks. His paintings usually depict scenes mostly from his imagination and some from real-life episodes communicated through his distinct visual language. He is currently exploring adding characters to accompany Mister Sasquatch.
