Nexus

An exhibition showcasing the work of artists from two seemingly dissimilar
artistic disciplines: painting and tattooing.

The works in this show are all paintings by fine artists who have been influenced by tattoo culture
and the imagery intrinsic to that culture; by tattoo artists who wield paintbrushes;
and by several individuals who have successfully made a dual career out of both painting and tattooing.
In these paintings one can witness the influence and crossover between the two mediums and subcultures.
