Art Fusion & Gallery Show at Black Lotus Tattoo
This Sunday, join me in celebrating the opening of Jaz Toeque's Black Lotus Gallery right in my own Brooklyn hood of Clinton Hill/Fort Greene. I got a private preview of the tattoo studio/art gallery -- which means I passed by uninvited and asked Jaz for an impromptu tour. And I was impressed. The space is gorgeous with exposed brick walls, hardwood flooring and perfect lighting for tattooing and viewing fine art. See photos of the space in the NY Times blog post on Black Lotus.
But the real draw is Jaz's tattoo work and those of a stellar line-up of guest artists including black and grey tattoo veteran Tony Olivas of Sacred Heart Tattoo in Georgia. Tony is taking appointments at Black Lotus now. [I just have to find some available space on me!]
Tony will be leading the Art Fusion Experiment at the opening -- that is, live collaborative drawing between artists where you can watch a work of art come to life. See videos of Art Fusion around the world here.
Tattooist and painter Mark Pinto of Thick as Thieves Tattoo in Denver, Co is also a guest artist and will be showing his fine art at the party as well.
The opening runs from 4-9PM with the after party at Sweet Revenge. Hope to see y'all there.
