The more i practice for the art of Tattoo the more my half finished ideas of art and expression slip away, today i sought to rekindle one such project, changing the pen for the brush to take on an old adversary
In 2012 i started a series entitled ‘Life In Little Pieces’.
The idea was to create a wall of 12 ‘saints’ all of which have had their place in my life past and future. essentially they are all self portraits /. They would be exhibited in a row, like the imposing art in a christian church, but take on a more gothic and self reflecting tone. Rather than these idols that celebrate the idea of virtue and sacrifice i wanted to focus on the parts of humanity which we might not want to fully admit, misdeed, alienation, heartbreak and ultimately, mortality.
After taking down the show FRAGMENTS./. /. .. I later found out the one of my simplest but most effective pieces hadn’t just been sold on the spot but had been taken all the way to New York City. / /./. This made me very happy and my little fragments are slowly but surely making their way around the globe././ .Sweden, Italy, Israel and now America.. /. /. Come on Asia/./. so i can move there . /./.
