This week's fine artist taking on tattoos is an incredibly talented illustrator who goes by the name Inoaix.
So, to be completely honest- this person is a bit of a mystery to me. I say "person" because for a long time, I had no idea if they were even male or female. Through some serious Instagram stalking, I discovered that she is a girl! A super cute one, too. With really cute dogs.
I stumbled across "Inoaix" on instagram when I saw a kickass drawing she did of our homeboy Ami James (above) and immediately fell in love with her work. She is actually the artist who initially inspired me to do this weekly post.
So, I saved a whole bunch of Inoaix's illustrations in a folder on my computer, and it's been sitting there ever since because well- I don't know a single fucking thing about her and I like to try to give a little background, insight, you know- ANYTHING- on who I'm writing about. And I still don't have those things. All I know is that Inoaix is a 20 year old artist from Shenzhen, and her work is way too fucking awesome not to share.
Her gorgeous, almost deconstructed black and white portraits of people (lots of rappers, some recognizable models, etc.) are chaotic and gorgeous at the same time. Somehow in the midst of all of those crazy, hectic lines she manages to form the most beautiful figures- and unbelievably manages to portray their tattoos as well. Her illustrations are seriously mesmerizing.
So basically- if you know anything about her at all, let us know. And if you don't, just give her a follow on Instagram (@inoanix) and keep up to date with all of her incredible work!
