Tattoos for architects

Tattoos for architects

Collater.al Contributors · 7 months ago · Art

Meet Lukas Feireiss, the German curator that in 2015 together with the Spanish tattoo artist Javier Rodriguez invented Tattoo For Architects“.
After many years of “tattoo = taboo” we have some good news from the architecture word.
“Tattoo For Architects” is an event where you can ink a series of tattoo designs for architects, a vast sample book with funny phrases like “All you need is dynamyte” or the faces of Archi Star from the past like Le Corbusier or Design objects like the Superstudio Group table and many more. In 2018 they also participated in Venice Biennale (Architecture edition): they organized a series of tattoo spots around the city. 

Following famed 18th century German architect and architecture historian Gottfried Semper, architecture acts as our third skin. Here are some pictures of the 2018 Biennale, hoping that for the next edition 2020 they will come back. So please don’t take architecture so seriously!

Kuralay Meirbekova, the one-line technique artist

Kuralay Meirbekova, the one-line technique artist

Collater.al Contributors · 7 months ago · Art

Kuralay Meirbekova is a young contemporary artist, known for her one-line technique. Born and raised in Kazakhstan, she later moved to Liverpool where she achieved the architecture degree and has a special interest in interior design. In spite of it, her greatest passion is drawing and painting, through which she defines and explore her inner artistic nature. The focus of her interest in the painting are people and constant search of a distinctive visual language that would be recognizable and convey her own idea of reality. In the past four years, Kuralay developed the one-line technique. This approach naturally spread to other media, like video animation, metal wire installations, and textile art.

She presented in May her second solo exhibition in Helsinki, but certainly we’ll hear soon of her.

A selection of her creations below.

tattoo_a_piece turns your skin into a color palette

tattoo_a_piece turns your skin into a color palette

Giulia Guido · 7 months ago · Art

Some tattoo artists, such as Eva Krbdk or Zhiee Tattoo, are committed to transforming works of art into tattoos, making them small masterpieces. Then, there is someone else who takes a step back and, instead of reproducing a Van Gogh or a Picasso, literally transforms her clients’ skin into a palette. 

I’m talking about @tattoo_a_piece, a South Korean tattoo artist who has specialized in making small strips of color, similar to those that are put on the palette and then create a third color. 

Their realism will drive you crazy and I’m sure you’ll think it’s a swipe of paint left on the skin, but this time you won’t be able to remove it with water.

The protagonists of female street art by Lidia Cao

The protagonists of female street art by Lidia Cao

Claudia Fuggetti · 7 months ago · Art

Lidia Cao is a talented Spanish artist, born in Ordes, in northern Galicia, who currently lives and works in Santiago de Compostela. On several occasions she has told how her passion was born and what drove her to approach the street world:

“Since I was a child I have seen many artists painting walls and many empty spaces in my hometown: I immediately fell in love with this form of expression”.

Lidia is a self-taught artist and has never attended a drawing course in her life, she has always followed her instinct and her natural predisposition towards art and the world of creativity. The interesting aspect of his works is that almost all the subjects he loves to represent are women. Delicate, decisive, sweet and determined: Lidia’s heroines are very different from each other and express varied femininity, accompanied by a sense of loneliness that serves as a background.

Her great ability to express emotions can be summed up in her approach to life itself:

“Finally, I would say that everything I experience in my daily life inspires me. My emotions, my travels and all the people who cross my path are sources of inspiration in my work.

Take a look at our gallery and the artist’s website, which you can find here.

The spontaneous and colorful art of Taylor Cox

The spontaneous and colorful art of Taylor Cox

Collater.al Contributors · 7 months ago · Art

Taylor Cox is a young artist living and working in Atlanta where received her B.F.A in Drawing and Painting from Kennesaw State University in 2013.

Painting for her involves an incredible amount of building and piecing together. An intuitive, spontaneous process beginning with bright and optimistic color. Laying down layers each comprised of visual cues to places in her memories. The art she creates is spontaneous, optimistic and made from bright colors applied in layers Combining these elements creates a framework to which she build upon.

Another thing to know is that she loves so much the sea that it becomes the protagonist of her latest creations, perfect texture for the waves and two-dimensional spaces occupied even by small bathers.

Her works are in many Atlanta’s galleries, but for those who are not close to, there is still possible following it on her personal website.

Have a look below.
