Last Rites Gallery is proud to announce a special group exhibition, entitled Flesh to Canvas, specifically made up of tattoo artists who create works aside from ink on skin. Those who work inside the tattoo world realize just how much artistic talent exists therein. To the general public, however, much of this world remains a mystery. Therefore, we have created a show comprised of paintings by tattoo artists to help bring attention to these important and extremely relevant creators. This show will be an annual event, as we feel it is an integral part of why Last Rites Gallery was created. Therefore, we present to you Flesh to Canvas, a collection of fine art by a renowned group of tattoo artists.
Participating artists include: Daniel Albrigo, Shawn Barber, Nick Baxter, Aaron Bell, Paul Booth, Boris, George Campise, Joe Capobianco, Jon Clue, Damon Conklin, Chris Dingwell, Alex Garcia, Jeff Gogue, Tim Harris, Dana Helmuth, Phil Holt, Timothy Hoyer, Nikko Hurtado, Filip Leu, Little Dragon, Eric Merrill, Brian Murphy, Marcus Pacheco, Leslie Reesen, Julio Rodriguez, Kim Saigh, Toxyc, Stefano, Tom Strom, Amanda Wachob, Phil Young and more.
