Graffiti artist turned gallery artist, Saratoga Sake has a solo show, Vamperina, opening this week at California’s Distinction Gallery. Think of it, an entire show of rosy cheeked vampy girls, ballerina dresses, and more. Says Sake on his work: ‘My subject matter is a mix of memories of my childhood, family photos and stories, music, Valiant heroes of WWI and WWII, finding photos of old lovers, spooky looking dames from the Victorian era, and my much-loved eras of the 1900s through the 50s’.
