Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco is pleased to present Takoro Lives!!, a solo show featuring new limited edition prints from Peter Santa-Maria (aka ATTACK PETER) is a Miami-based illustrator and printmaker known for his hand-carved linoleum block prints featuring original monsters, kaiju and pop culture icons. His notably bold style is influenced by American traditional tattoo flash, artwork from Japanese and Thai historical periods, and Golden Age illustrators such as Jack Kirby.
Many of Peter’s prints feature his creation, the tentacled kaiju Takoro, and he has collaborated with brands such as Marvel, Toho, Nongshim Shin Noodle Soup and most recently, Mighty Jaxx for his latest designer toy Daruma. A printmaking expert with singular style, Peter has gained a dedicated fan following through his original designs, memorable collaborations and work across comics, games and much more. Santa-Maria is an in-house artist at Skybound Entertainment.
Peter will bring 300 prints to San Francisco’s Spoke Art Gallery! Each print will be 1/1 as they are printed on a unique and individually made background created by layering ink on Nepalese Lokta paper.
There will be 15 different images with 20 copies of each and no two will be the same! This is a great chance to get a special, one of a kind print that no one else will have!
There also may be a special, top secret print that Peter will hand out to the first few visitors who know the secret phrase.
Please join Spoke Art Gallery for Takoro Lives!!, opening Saturday, December 11th from 11am to 6pm, free and open to the public. Proof of vaccination and masks will be required to enter the gallery. Appointments for in-person viewings can be made HERE.
