These are the legit aesthetics that will send your local edgy kid home to beg for permission to get tattoos he's not cool enough to get. New subcultures gave birth to cyber art and bizarre trends that attracted both new-age freaks and any teenager on the internet with a desire to be ahead of the curve.
Denis Simonov isn't a new-age freak nor an adolescent edge-lord on the internet. He's simply a blackwork artist from the Kiev, Ukraine, with a taste for cyber art and aesthetics. Many of his works reflect the dark, desolate, and mysterious facade of the virtual world, depicting faint glitch works, androids, and VR-inspired elements. All are embedded in the skin in the rich depth of blackwork.
