Brooklyn illustrator Sara Antoinette Martin pulls from a range of influences with the result being a beautifully refined old school Coney Island Freak Show aesthetic. With her signature lacy patterns, taro card-like compositions, and flash art references, Martin brings it all together in both her paintings and sculptures. She will be debuting her long awaited, Chupacabra vinyl toy at Kid Robot at the end of August. She currently has some paintings on display at a show in her Gowanus studio space, Divine Lotteria as well. Be sure to check it out.
