My name is Fredy Santiago A.K.A. Sugar Coated a California-based artist, designer and illustrator. My work is best known for its unique clash of saturated colors, vibrant hand-drawn letters and illustrative storytelling characters.

My personal work explores “The bittersweet , troubles & joys of life” through paintings, drawings, illustrations, murals and commercial work.
Influenced by Post- Pop culture, animation, and vintage imagery, I have presented my work in a number of group shows across the United States.

I am currently working on fine art projects and doing work with brave clients.
