Check out his work here! These cute and mildly creepy figures have become wildly popular. In a matter of time Yosiell created an entire world for the Sicklings and came up with back stories fro them all.
As a young child in the New England area, Yosiell was surrounded with the stories of Salem witches, old colonial haunted houses, and authentic Victorian architecture. His work draws inspiration from these early influences, reflecting the darker elements of the human condition and the mysteries of the supernatural world.
Yosiell spent many night sketching forms. The Sicklings were born of these early sketches. Each Sickling seems to take on a distinctive personality.
Yosiell has had a solo show every year since 2008, and his paintings and resin sculptures are collected around the world. Additionally, Yosiell makes his presence known in group shows around the country with events in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Miami. Recent personal highlights include being a featured artist in the Pixar Times, Juxtapoz.com, and Hallmark UK.
Yosiell Lorenzo currently lives and works in Oakland, CA. were he has a studio at Faultline artspace.
