June 2011 Cover Artist, Ed Hardy, Opens Exhibition in San FranciscoJuxtapoz // Thursday, 09 Jun 2011
One of the original spirits in all of tattoo culture and art, Don Ed Hardy, will be creating a site-specific installation at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's Artist Gallery at Fort Mason in The Unruly Art of Don Ed Hardy, opening tonight, June 9, 2011. It will include cast resin work layered with vintage Hardy acetate tattoo stencils, porcelain pieces with cobalt handwork, original prints, and large-scale original brush painting.
Hardy is currently the cover of our June 2011 Issue.
As the Museum notes, "Also included will be a replica tattoo shop in a tiny closet space in the gallery: much like ones he observed in the 1950s complete with sheets of "flash" (painted designs), ink, and tattoo machines, it will reanimate the aura of that art in a bygone era."
