New work from Ran Maclurkin
I'm excited about the new work coming from Australia's own Ran Maclurkin, who is renowned for his "Art Brut" style, although he rather prefers the term he coined: "Abstract Noir." Tattooing since 2006, Ran describes his predominant body of work as "childlike and primal" -- the way he began drawing as a child.
To see more tattoos and fine art by Ran, check his site, and Facebook page.
Ran is also a featured artist in Black Tattoo Art 2 (copies are still available for purchase).
