Tattoo Artists Take On Fine Art In An Exhibit As Tribute To Tattoos
Painting and tattooing collide as artists like Nikko Hurtado and more take part in Nexus, showcasing the influence of tattoos in fine art.
In the contemporary art scene, it's hardly possible to take away tattoo influence from fine art. We've got fine artists turned tattoo artists, fine artists fuelled by the art of tattoos, artists who wield both tattoo machine and paintbrush, and tattoo artists who recreate fine art on skin.
Nexus, an exhibit co-curated by painter David Gluck aims to showcase how tattoo and painting collide through artists who are influenced by both in each of their works. Artists like Nikko Hurtado, Oda & King, and Kate Zambrano took part in Nexus, which focused on the crossover of a subculture and art forms that play a big part in the art scene today.
Nexus will be exhibiting at Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado from April 8 to May 7.
