Brooklyn-based artist Martin Mazorra has produced a NEW series of six limited edition prints inspired by Coney Island USA's own Sideshows by the Seashore. Each Print in the series pays tribute to a particular act or archetype associated with amazing physical feats of showmanship commonly associated with the Sideshow.
These 18 x 24 inch beauties are executed using the same process as poster work from the carnival and circus Heyday. Each of the images are hand-hewn wood carvings printed in combination with antique wooden display type on a 1930's Letterpress operated and maintained by the artist himself. Every impression, all of the color ink combinations, and each detail, are carefully planned and executed in the time-honored dark arts with all but one difference; The matrix used to apply the color were Legos - a feat that demands a lengthier explanation, we know, one that you'll have to see to believe!
