sideshowbanners

Toni-Lee Sangastiano painted her first sideshow banners in 1996 for Coney Island USA’s Sideshows by the Seashore. This unique learning experience ignited a passion for sideshow history and the art of the sideshow. Decades later, Toni-Lee continues to paint banners and is considered one of the leading sideshow banner painters in the United States. As an artist, Graphic Design Professor, and a PhD student (IDSVA) with a specific interest in the carnivalesque, all of her artwork and research serves as important historical documentation of the sideshow, circus, and the show people who make all of the magic all happen.

In addition to sideshow banners, Toni-Lee also paints realistic portraits of sideshow performers, circus, and carnival landscapes. Typography, printmaking, letterpress, paper marbling, bookmaking and the maker movement also inform other aspects of Toni-Lee’s art and the classes that she teaches at Champlain College. You can see more of her art at sideshowbanners.com and sangastiano.com.
