Painting a Room with David Schiesser

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 18, 2014
David Schiesser is an extremely talented Germany tattoo and pen and ink artist. That is a given. In fact, he makes some of our favorite flash art in the world. But this room, literally noted on his website as "Painting A Room," is entirely painted with pen and ink, with amazing detail, skill, and narrative. We grabbed images from Schiesser's site and took our own detail shots from the main mural wall. Incredible stuff.

Video: FUZI UVTPK TAIWAN

Graffiti // Friday, October 04, 2013
Fuzi has been roaming all over the globe, primarily leaving ink on peoples skin in untraditional settings aka not tattoo parlors. The Parisian artist headed to Taiwan for the first time, which was well documented in this new video. His stay consisted of a little spray painting, tattooing and from what we could see in a quick frame, perhaps he made a visit to the cultural iconic, betel nut girls? We certainly did when we were there. How could you resist?

Flash Art of Amund Dietzel @ Milwaukee Art Museum

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 26, 2013
In conjunction with Harley-Davidson’s 110th anniversary celebration, the Milwaukee Art Museum presents its first tattoo exhibition, highlighting the work of Amund Dietzel, who came to Milwaukee in 1913. This exhibition celebrates one hundred years since Dietzel’s arrival, and in the midst of what many consider a renaissance of tattooing, the Museum is proud to present the work of one of its earliest masters. Dietzel helped define the look of the “traditional” or “old school” tattoo, kept the practice alive through two world wars, and passed on his craft to future generations.
