In 1906 German art historian Wilhelm Worringer wrote, “The value of a line, of a form consists for us in the value of the life that it holds for us. It holds its beauty only through our own vital feeling, which, in some mysterious manner, we project into it.”
Artist Heather Hansen employs her own body and performance to create large-scale charcoal and pastel drawings.
Hand Sewn portraits by David Catá
Does love really has to hurt? According to artist David Catá it obviously does. The Spanish artist uses his body as a canvas, writing an autobiographical diary. In his ongoing series ‘A Flor De Piel’, he embroiders portraits of people who have influenced or marked his life – family, friends, teachers, lovers, partners – sewn into the palm of his hand.
"He is Japanese and there has his basis in the studio Black Ink Power , but the tattoo artist Kenji Alucky is a traveled man and it’s one that elevates the category of tattoo art .The pointillism is his specialty in dynamic and detailed works, seeking inspiration in tribalism , or the psychedelic fractal art .
The japanese artist invests in less conventional tattoos ,painting the inside of the fingers or palms , blending tribal art with geometric elements , visual effects that give the idea of dynamism , or even fractal art that uses fractals ( mathematical functions ) to transform the results into images . Patterns of black ink that eventually result from this huge amount of talent of Alucky that surprised us , for once again showing how various artistic techniques apply as well to the tattoo.”
