New York, NY- New York Adorned, in collaboration with White Box, is proud to present a captivating performance event and art exhibit. This exhibition is part of the White Box 6 Feet Under summer festival. During an exciting two hour opening, the tattoo artists of New York Adorned will create one-of-a-kind paintings. Each one of the twelve artists will work on an identical, larger than life print of a clear skinned nude by street life photographer Patrick O’Dell. The evening is orchestrated by New York Adorned founder Lori Leven.
Every one of the tattoo artists brings a unique style which s/he has perfected for years, from lettering to traditional Japanese designs to classical decorative arts.
