Outer Limits at Koplin Del Rio – Preparatory Drawings by Tattoo Artists
Figurative painter and tattoo artist, Shay Bredimus uses tattoo ink on drafting film to portray spontaneous and personal moments of his models. In his recent series, currently on exhibit at Koplin Del Rio, entitled Kotomi, Bredimus casts female personifications of the Sister Cities of Los Angeles as the subject of his portrait paintings. The gallery also features a sampling of drawings by the tattoo artists of Outer Limits in Long Beach, the oldest operating tattoo shop in the United State. In addition Bredimus will be hosting an indepth artist talk at the gallery where he will highlight his tattoo and fine art works through slides and live examples.
