"We witnessed impressive solid blacks that crept beneath the skin, gasped at impregnations in polychrome that bloomed upon flesh —watched as straight lines flickered across the broad curves of backs. Pixels, frames and fonts have invaded the living."
La Veine Graphique Volume 1 shows vein tattooing from a different perspective; it shows what tattooing can "also" be. The book offers wildly varying perspectives for design potential and meaning in tattoo work. Emancipated from traditional American, Japanese and Tribal styles, a new school tattoo artists have introduced their own code.
La Veine Graphique Volume 1 traces the career of fifteen of these pioneers and discusses the context in which each established their approach. Furthermore, each artist reveals their creative processes as connected with images of their works, with 8 -12 pages dedicated to each of them.
Stunningly evocative tattoo book from Noire Méduse!
