Photography Exhibition of Tattooed Folk by Kelly Wilkinson

 

Monkey Paw Tattoo Studio is an independant, custom tattoo studio, which has been based in the Britannia Centre for the last three years. To celebrate this anniversary, I have teamed up with Kelly Wilkinson, of Rose of my Heart Photography. 

Kelly is well known for photographing the HASTINGS locals and last year published a book of local portraits. 

Kelly and I have worked together before, he has photographed me for his 365 portrait series, his Macabre series and we worked together on shots for an album cover.

This series of photographs documents my clients, showing both their tattoos and their characters. Come along and see some great work and have a look at the tattoo studio.

Figurative & Abstract, Portraiture & Landscapes

 

I use oils on canvas stretched over custom made frames to give a different foundation to how the overall piece is viewed. Most of my portraiture is double sided to reflected different aspects of the same view.

 

My landscapes are also on custom made frames to support the energy that the subject contains.

Erotic Art in Latex

 

I create individual pieces of art using latex to reflect the intensity of an erotic situation. Using what a person wears as the medium gives an immediacy to what I create. Each work springs from an understanding of the energy involved in the intimacy of the situation.

 

The use of latex links the "scene" as a whole. I am an artist who is able to feel that the very structure of the medium reflects what he wishes to express. As such, the original idea for each work must come from an erotic proposition. A simple whip on its own is not enough. A whip with a woman who knows how to use it is what is required.

 

I can produce an image from my own experiences. They can also come from the experiences of others. Expressed in visual, audio or written media.
