Artwork created for the Burning Ink exhibition.
Commissioned by DC Shoes and Redux magazine at Bleu Noir in Paris
WHAT IS BURNING INK?
Burning Ink is not a standard exhibition.
The main difference is that the buyers will not go home with the artworks. At least not in their hands.
If they like what they see, they can buy the design and get it inked on their skin.
All designs are unique artworks done for this original tattoo exhibition.
At the end of the exhibition when the show was over, the gallery didn’t take down the art pieces.
After the exhibition we burned all the original drawings and designs!
All that was left after the show was the tattoos on the buyers skin.
Burning Ink is a creative art exhibition that tells us a story between design, art, and tattoo.
AN ORIGINAL CONCEPT
Let see again what was the idea behind this art show.
The concept was really nice:
- You draw an illustration
- You show it during the exhibition
- The buyer doesn’t receive the original drawing…
- The buyer get the artwork tattooed instead
- After the show we burn the artworks
WHO WAS BEHIND BURNING INK?
The exhibition was organized by Redux magazine and DC Shoes.
It was not held in a simple art gallery, but at Bleu Noir which is probably the best tattoo parlor in Paris.
Bleu Noir is a tattoo parlor opened by Jeykill and Veenom, two visual artists turned who became tattoo artists.
The artists invited for this show were people like myself, Supakitch, Koralie or Amandine Urruty.
Do you think that this art show was inspiring? You will like the solo exhibition I did in Melbourne.
