Joe Quesada Art Exhibit Poster * SANTERIANS * NYC 11" x 17" Rare 2007 Mint New Condition. Large Size measures 11" inches wide by 17" inches high. Large Original Poster for the February 23rd -July 30th 2007 Exhibition of Joe Quesada's * Santerians * at the Franklin H. Williams Caribbean Cultural Center in New York City. Comic books and the Santeria religion come together in a ground-breaking exhibit at Manhattan's Caribbean Cultural Center in the exhibition "Santerians : The Art of Joe Quesada," at the Franklin H. Williams Caribbean Cultural Center in New York City. " The Santerians "are the focus of this rare exhibition of original illustrations of Quesada's work from the Marvel Comic series " Daredevil : Father " where the popular Marvel character meets the new superheroes on the block , The Santerians. Quesada, a respected illustrator, is known for his innovative and successful work with Marvel Comics as its editor-in-chief. Quesada was born in New York City to Cuban-born parents. He studied at the School of Visual Arts, where he received a BFA in illustration in 1984. He started out as an artist in the early 1990s. His first widely distributed works were for Valiant Comics where he penciled and plotted Ninjak, X-O Manowar, and others. His art was heavily influenced by Japanese manga, evidenced by large, watery eyes, long, flowing hair, and unnatural body proportions. Several of his page compositions reflect the art nouveau style of Alphonse Mucha. Later, he formed his own publishing company, Event Comics, and created Ash, a firefighter with superpowers. In 1998, Event Comics was contracted to do several books for Marvel Comics, dubbed Marvel Knights. As editor of Marvel Knights, Quesada encouraged experimentation and used his contacts in the indie comics world to bring in new creators such as David W. Mack, Mike Oeming, Brian Michael Bendis, Garth Ennis, and Steve Dillon. Quesada also illustrated a well-received Daredevil story written by cult film director Kevin Smith. Joe Quesada became editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics in 2000. He also sits on the executive board of comic book charity The Hero Initiative. This exhibit is being curated by Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez of Somos Arte in collaboration with Marvel Comics. Original concept drawings for The Santerians characters - named Ogun, Oshun, Oya, Chango and Eleggua after Orishas or Santeria spirits - are inspired by deities from the Yoruba-based sacred traditions from Nigeria that became the Santeria religion in the Western Hemisphere. The unique display of the characters in the exhibition has gallery walls colored to represent each Orisha's individuality and powers. Visitors also will be able to get a peek at the comic book creation process through concept drawings and original full-color digital masters from the "Daredevil: Father" comic book.
