The Most Glamorous Court Jester: Interview with Albie

Tattoo Artists4 min Read

In this interview with Albie we talk artistic background, the power of community, and how to survive on a desert island.

Snakes slither from portal doors that open up into checked floors and lilting lips. Fruit bowls and key holes, spotted socks and adorable doggies; Albie creates pieces that are like diving head first into a hypnagogic world of 80's Deco Revival. It's full of the vivid colors, bold designs, and playful concepts that are completely eye arresting and awe inspiring. 

What was your childhood like? Do you think your upbringing directly inspired the artist you are today? 

Your artwork blends a multitude of movements and styles, while also infused with your own voice. A lot of it reminds me of surrealist Joan Miro with a humorous glam twist. Who are your favorite artists, films, or books? What inspires you?

You work at Valentine’s Tattoo Co. which is also home to some of the best artists in the industry. What is it like working with such talented people? What makes this particular shop special and different from the rest? 

What do you hope your work illustrates? Does your work comment on current social or political issues? Why do you do what you do?

If you were stranded on a desert island what music would you need, and what items would you take?
