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.”
