Since the start of the 2021 USL Championship season, the Indomitable Club has celebrated the unique and diverse arts community in and around the greater Sacramento region and in conjunction with Arden Fair, both organizations are primed to present the Pride Month edition of this year’s Artist Spotlight series.
The series began with Nooligan’s Opening Night poster followed Kris Rosa’s Quail poster to commemorate the first night the squad donned the Quail Kit. Now, the Artist Spotlight series rolls along with another talented local artist whose work will be auctioned off for local LGBTQ+ charities – Donco Tolomanoski.
According to Donco’s website – where you can find more of the artist’s work at https://www.doncoart.com – “As an artist I find myself exploring the psyche and all the known and unknown parts of the human mind. My collage pieces are an expression of my internal parts and spirit. Each piece starts out naturally and evolves with time as I work through them almost like a puzzle. Placing all the components together until the result becomes finale, the story comes together, and my thoughts translate onto my mat board. My pieces are all done by hand and are not digitally enhanced. The finalized piece is a photograph of the original collage printed on archival paper.”
Donco has previously designed Pride Month merchandise for the Republic FC Team Store. His original work that will be auctioned off has not been shown to the public just yet, but he did share with Connor Sutton on The Breakaway: A Republic FC Podcast, where he pulled his inspiration from.
“My piece was inspired by kind of going back to happy times, which is the title of the piece,” he said. “And just kind of people just celebrating and living life and just expressing themselves and having a big party!”
The work, along with other beautiful pieces, will be showcased at Arden Fair and will be located inside the main plaza across from the elevator. The showcase will be available June 16-July 13 and additional information can be found by visiting here where supporters can bid on the one-of-a-kind pieces that are being auctioned off individually.
