Mystery Demo by Saturday Night Live Artists

First in the 2016 IMATS New York line-up to be announced is a demonstration featuring a mystery character by two award-winning Saturday Night Live artists, Josh Turi and John Caglione Jr. This captivating demonstration will take place Sunday, April 10, 2016.

IMATS brings the highest caliber talent to the stage. Josh Turi, an Emmy Award-winning make-up artist, runs his New Jersey-based company Designs to Deceive, which has provided make-up, make-up effects, prosthetics and custom props for film, television and theater for more than two decades. Projects for Turi include Saturday Night Live, Orange is the New Black and Mathew Barney’s River of Fundament.

A student of Dick Smith, John Caglione Jr. honed his prosthetic make-up techniques and joined NBC’s make-up department in 1976. Caglione’s experience covers television and film; he has been nominated for, and won, Oscar, BAFTA and Emmy awards.
