Pictorial Candi is the pseudonym of eccentric, off kilter songstress, writer and artist Candelaria Saenz Valiente, who currently lives in Warsaw.
PC’s inner space pop is perhaps akin to R Stevie Moore, Blood Orange, Klaus Nomi, Connan Mockasin and David Bowie.
As Pictorial Candi she has released a first album called Eat your Coney Island (lado abc – 2012) and a second one called Drink (lado abc – 2013).
Drink is an actual DIY carbonated, bottled drink with a download code at the reverse of the bottle’s label. Both albums are equally free and out there. These are mixed tapes of a wild generic spectra.
Her third album fOREVER TILL YOU DIE, 2016, was released as tapes by the Berlin label Mansions & Millions and on vinyl by Lado abc.
Pictorial Candi collaborated with Kamil Szuszkiewicz for the Opendoor Edition of Waywords and Meansigns in 2017, recording page 615 line 12 through page 619 line 16.
