Memoir: The Tattooed Portraits Series

Memoir: The Tattooed Portraits Series by Shawn Barber. Showing at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC through July 28, 2012.

Los Angeles based artist Shawn Barber has a new exhibit at Joshua Liner Gallery in New York and it’s cool!  “Memoir: The Tattooed Portraits Series” is presented in conjunction with the forthcoming hardcover release of a book with the same name. This is the third volume in Barber’s ongoing series documenting the world and artistry of contemporary tattoo, as seen through the eyes and art of a classically trained portrait painter as well as a tattooist for the last five years.

The works in the exhibit are extremely detailed so I urge you to check these out in person.  I spoke with Shawn at the opening night reception and he was cool.  We talked about his great art, Los Angeles – his current and my former home as well as some artist friends we have in common.  Those topics always make for a great encounter with G.  🙂
