Talk about an exciting project and story! This dude right here was born with his liver being on the opposite side of his body and it only being 20% of the size it should be. His mother was a match and donated part of her liver to him to save his life. The colors represent their birthstones and bond in life through this surgery. I was happy to have the privilege of tattooing this piece. “I went on a 14 day silent retreat and it was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Towards the end of the two weeks I had what I think I can only describe as an out of body experience during the 4am session. I felt an overwhelming bubble of sadness and guilt literally rise within me but it wasn’t mine I was just experiencing it for someone else, I opened my eyes in floods of soundless tears that also felt not mine. I forgave my mum there and then, and it felt natural that I would stand by her no matter what, no more distancing myself, no more pushing her to get help, I would just be there unconditionally. When I left and came back home my mum told me she had something to tell me. She’d woken up really early in the morning (around 4am) and she said it was then clear what she had to do and why she had to do it. I believe I felt what my mum was feeling. I still don’t know what my mum actually felt that morning but it gave her the power and motivation to change her life.”
One of my favourite pieces to date, being able to tattoo the person who trained me and taught me was amazing. We did this cool mini portrait on my bro Terry, of his wife. Loneliness in the universe Loneliness is a feeling that has become one of the characteristic features of our generation Z. In theory, a person as a social being surrounded by other individuals should not experience this feeling. Is it the result of the appearance of social networks and online life for show, or the fact that we have much more information about the world and people that we want to get away from this? For me personally, this has become the main feeling of life and creativity. I didn’t draw, and I thought that I didn’t know how to do it, until I was at one moment at the bottom of the darkest, most drawn and dreary loneliness. Before that, I tried to close the disconnect with the world, communicating with people who were doing something of what I thought, I was never given and never will be. But if it happens that these very people are knocking the soil out from under your feet, then you, like Alice, are flying to the bottom of the same dreary rabbit hole. And that made me who I am now. The more you delve into knowledge, the less you want to communicate with most people and the more necessary it becomes to build your own world. One of my favorite artists, Victor Pivovarov, a representative of Moscow conceptualism, a landmark in unofficial Soviet and then Russian art, in 1975 produced a series of “Projects for a lonely person” that roughly describe a “perfectly lonely” person. I also decided to make a series of illustrations to the philosophical aspects of the consideration of this concept. Still, I'm also a kind of Moscow conceptualist. The second image I will attach the work of Pivovarov. Based on the generalized picture, we can distinguish four images of loneliness: cosmic, cultural, social, interpersonal. So N1: Cosmic loneliness is a person’s experience of his remoteness from the “all-encompassing” essence, which nature, cosmos, and the world can seem to be; God, the "highest mind" '; human history. This refers to the state of mind of a person who realizes that his “life program” remains unrealized, that his personality is not noticed by society, that he has not left “his mark on history”.
