A hellish take on the classic Circus Posterus character, the bat skinned beastie was designed and sculpted by Zectron and produced by Tru:Tek, clocking in at a solid 3.5? of hand cast, keshi-style rubber. Due to be making it’s debut at the show in 2 exclusive colours, expect a final reveal, plus full release details.
The Skelve was designed by Stranger Factory owners Brandt Peters & Kathie Olivas, and quickly became an omnipresent figure in paintings, drawings, sculpture and more. The Skelve has become the mischievous face of both Stranger Factory and Circus Posterus, and has been featured in gallery shows from Albuquerque to Japan. The Skelve is the perfect avatar of curiosity and mischief, and we’re excited to see what new forms he takes in the hands of this talented roster of artists.
“Conjuring Mischief” opens May 2nd and runs through June 1st, with an opening reception on Friday, May 2nd from 6 – 9 PM.
