“currently working on my next show for Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York. September 8th.
will be exploring with solid blacks. crisp lines and patterns.
juxtaposed with the subtle soft of face, figure, and such.
painting layers of intricate black shapes is completely meditating.
the challenge is how to incorporate other elements with it to make an interesting image.
hope the next few months will be fruitful. :)”
audrey kawasaki is quite possibly my favorite artist, contemporary at least. i still remember when i first saw one of her girls, i think it was Necklace, and i still remember buying my first magazine featuring her, a Juxtapose with the Octogirls spread. Her work has inspired me for a long time now and every time i come across her new pieces, it’s catalyzes a certain enlivening joy that i wish i could share with someone. During dark days i think i most appreciate that feeling, an inspiration to push and better myself as an artist, no matter how proficient, and maybe grow as a person in the process, so that i can maybe inspire that feeling in someone one day.
idk, i figured if anyone wasn’t familiar i’d share. thought maybe if you think like me you’d care. inspiration is perhaps my favorite feeling
My very first tattoo show I got to tattoo at this February and I chose to design a piece inspired by @audkawa using three elements from three of her pieces making them one design for my best friend. We had four hours to play, more will be added/enhanced in the future. ❤❤❤❤❤ (Taken with instagram)
