From Kings Avenue Tattoo: We are honored and humbled to host the legendary tattooer and artist Ed Hardy for an unprecedented 3-day event.  Hardy, renowned for his genre changing, globally influenced tattoo designs, announced that he will host “Pictures of the Gone World,” taking place May 15th, 16th & 17th at Kings Avenue Tattoo.  The event will consist of a three-day exhibition of Hardy’s most recent artwork, accompanied by the release of a New York- centric tattoo history book and a series of talks covering his influential, six-decade career. “Ed is a pioneer of tattooing, and we are making history with this event,” says Kings Avenue owner Mike Rubendall. Hardy will present a collection of his current and past artwork, consisting of mixed-media paintings that incorporate American an Japanese tattoo motifs, and “kiddie flash” – traditional maritime-inspired designs that he drew as a tattoo-obsessed child in the late 1950s, rendered with colored pencil on looseleaf notebook paper-which has never been publicly exhibited. The event marks the release of the Lew The Jew Alberts: Early 20th Century Tattoo Drawings, a compilation of designs attributed to Lew Alberts, a Newark, NJ native who tattooed under the famed Bowery-based artist Charlie Wagner. It’s the most recent title from Hardy Marks, the publishing imprint that Hardy co-founded in 1982, specializing in tattoo history and alternative art.  A limited number of books will be available for purchase at Kings Avenue, and Hardy will be signing copies on May 15th. Hardy will also stage two talks.  ...Read More »

Ego Death Part 2: Just Fucking Do It!

So it looks like the Ego Death kickstarter project will be fully funded (thanks for your shares and support)! It’s still going until Wednesday at around 12:20pm Pacific time so I am doing some last mintue promotions to try and get more funds to make the show even better. I’ve never really put on an art ‘event’ before so I figure the more money, the better the show! I found myself strangely calm throughout the whole fund raising process. The stress didn’t set in until I hit my goal amount- ok, you got the money, now how the Hell are you going to make this thing happen? Where do you rent a bad ass coffin from, anyway? Actually, I have people helping me with this project and we did find a place to rent a coffin and Hearse among many other things. But as with anything I have never really done before, that spectre of anxiety starts to creep in: surprise, dumb ass- it’s your ego!Read More »
