The Mosaic Inspired Tattoos of Diego Brandi
Tattoo artist Diego Brandi, like many other tattoo artists, finds his inspiration in ancien arts. But if others prefer the references of Fine arts, engravings or stained glass, the Italian artist has decided to explore a less known form of art: Mosaic. Mosaic is a very ancient art, very popular during the Antiquity, that consists of creatings images with fragments of stone, glass and other colored materials. The houses, palaces, temples and swimming pools of the rich people of the History were covered with mosaics. Archeologists have discovered them and recreated them, and now, they can be seen in the most famous museums of the world. When speaking of mosaic, the first thing that comes to mind is the treasures of Pompeii, the Greco-Roman civilization and the archeological sites of Northern Africa. References are numerous, a great source of inspiration for artists looking for new artistic ideas to inject in contemporary art. Diego Brandi is one those. Based in Roma, the capital of Italy, the tattoo artist has worked in London, with Mo Coppoletta before opening his own shop. After exploring esoteric and old school tattoos, he gained his fame with his colorful and bold mosaic tattoos. Go follow him on Instagram and check his interesting tattoos.
