About the Exhibition

In the tattoo studio, artists are called to perform; clients request their hand to illustrate a pre-conceived idea, approved and transferred from carbon paper to skin. In their studio practice comes the freedom to move out of line, to work without expectation, and explore different mediums and subject matters. Co-curated with San Pedro-based artist Nathan Kostechko, this exhibition examines the latter— artists who navigate a fine line between an external perception of their work via tattooing, and their own interests, backgrounds, and cultural heritage that inform a wider practice. Many of these artists have helped pave the way for others with multi-faceted creative work in today’s contemporary culture.

Participating artists: Daniel Albrigo, Emma Bagley, Shawn Barber, Shay Bredimus, Bryan Burk, Scott Campbell, Danie Cansino, Matt Carignan, Aron Dubois, Gianni Gigliotti, Don Ed Hardy, Mat Hurtado, Coulter Jacobs, Jesse Jaramillo, Nathan Kostechko, Chris Martin, Matt McCormick, Mister Cartoon, Shizu Saldamando, Tamara Santibañez, Cheyenne Sawyer, Zac Scheinbaum, Derrick Snodgrass, and Carlos Torres.
