The Iranian Artist Nairy Baghramian’s Bronze Sculptures Are Soft as Skin – W Magazine09.04.17

The human body in all of its forms (and deformities) is a recurring theme for the artist Nairy Baghramian, who tends to talk about her work with the precision of a surgeon. Though her output spans two decades, 2017 has been a breakout year for the Iranian-born, Berlin-based artist, who is in her mid-40s and best known for her mixed-media sculptures. In May, she unveiled a solo show at Marian Goodman Gallery in New York; in June, she was at Documenta 14 in Kassel, Germany, and Skulptur Projekte Mnster. In September, she takes over three floors of the Walker Art Center, in Minneapolis, for Dformation Professionelle, her first institutional solo exhibition in the U.S.

Though the survey was originally conceived as a retrospective, Baghramian decided to create new approximations of her existing pieces by revisiting ideas, materials, and shapes she previously used, without reproducing them. Also on view will be a site-specific work in bronze commissioned for the Walkers newly augmented sculpture garden. Painted in pastel colors, it evokes, not surprisingly, the softness and undefined color of skin.

ARAKI: art, tradition, and the mysterious allure of japanese bondage – Designboom09.04.17

from september 21st to december 3rd 2017, fondazione bisazza celebrates one of the most internationally acclaimed photographers and contemporary artists nobuyoshi araki. the solo exhibit ARAKI curated by filippo maggia, spotlights the japanese master photographers work and life, showing his female nudes, sensual floral compositions, urban still lifes and tokyo skyscapes. seventy photographs motivate visitors to reflect on the themes of love, femininity, and death.

the exhibition at fondazione bisazza highlights works from several of arakis renowned photographic series including sentimental journey, painting flowers, suicide in tokyo, hana kinbaku, erotos, bondages, and 67 shooting back. kinbaku, the ancient japanese art of bondage, is one of the artists most provocative and recurring themes. nude women bound in ropes, evoking a simultaneous sense of pleasure and pain, seek to transport viewers through an intense emotional experience. arakis translation of kinbaku into photography can also be observed in an advertising campaign for bisazza in 2009. thirteen previously unpublished prints demonstrate the artists penchant for blending art, tradition, and the mysterious allure of japanese culture.

in arakis female portraits, the capture of this fleeing moment is an intuitive process between the photographer and his subject: when photographing a person, a small movement of the lips, or a sudden reddening of the skin, is enough for the photographer to react, thus influencing the model who responds instinctively, writes curator filippo maggia. in that precise moment, you have to shoot.

the exhibition also includes arakis most recent works from the love on the left eye collection. these photographs are all deliberately obscured on the right side of the image, a reflection of arakis loss of vision in the right eye. complementing the show are two films: one offering a behind-the-scenes look at arakis creative process and involvement in the bisazza campaign; the other featuring an interview with the japanese photographer. overall, the exhibition presents a curated retrospective of key experiences of arakis life over the years, highlighting his poetic exploration of beauty that resides in the infinitely small space between life and death.

Make Art Not War: Community comes together to work on art fusion piece at Bohemian Tattoo Club – Kokomo Tribune09.04.17

KOKOMO In a time of division and conflict across the nation, citizens of Kokomo have been finding even more ways to come together.

Last week, Juan Espinoza IV and Chloe Boor organized Kokomo Stands Together, a unity gathering in Foster Park. More than 100 people were in attendance, including several local public figures, clergy and educators.

A few days later, Chloes father Tim Boor, owner of The Bohemian Tattoo Club and Gallery, continued that spirit of togetherness during downtown Kokomos First Friday event.

Using the Bohemians iconic owl design, tattoo artists created three free tattoo designs representing unity and peace. All donations for the tattoos were given to Bridges Outreach, who was teaming up with LeaderOne Financial for the fifth annual Hawgin the Block event happening just outside on Main Street.

With Bridges Outreach being right next door, Bohemian artists have created multiple pieces for the nonprofit to auction off as fundraisers in the past, Tim said.

Honing in on the Artsapalooza First Friday Theme, Tim also outlined the largest art fusion piece Bohemian has ever done.

Dozens of people filtered into the shop, gazing into the eclectically designed rooms of the newly reopened business. Bohemian just reopened its doors this summer after suffering extensive damage in a fire in June of 2016.

Children and adults alike picked up crayons, markers and other mediums to put their mark on the large paper canvas in the back room, where Tim was serving refreshments and talking with customers and visitors.

Our theme personally was Make Art Not War because of all of the horrible stuff in the world, he said. We thought it would be cool to do things that got the community together and getting people that dont know each other to paint a picture together or draw something.

This isnt the first art fusion piece Bohemian artists have participated in, but it was the first time the business got the community involved. Professional artists and amateurs worked together on different areas of the piece, which was given to Bridges Outreach to either hang up in their building or auction as a fundraiser.

Tim said with all of the ridiculous people in the world, the movement against racism and other divisiveness might as well start here in Kokomo.

Tattooed people were kind of every color, he laughed. As a whole, Kokomo is what a lot of people out in the world call that Midwestern hospitality. I think its good city and it has a lot of great intentions, so I think there will be more of this.

We do these First Fridays and other festivals that seem to bring people out and bring people downtown. Hopefully we can change peoples minds a little bit or at least open them up, and the more groups of people you get to hang out together the better chance that is.

In the future, Tim said Bohemian would like to do more art fusion with the community especially with children, to encourage them to try art as well as supporting the arts in schools with the finished pieces.

Now that were back in our building hopefully some of these things will come into fruition, he said.

Ex-model has mum’s ashes turned into very special tattoo to ‘offer protection on the other side’ – Mirror.co.uk09.04.17

Grieving ex-model feels her late mum is looking out for her from ‘the other side’ after having her ashes turned into a tattoo .

Tracy Roberts wanted to have a permanent tribute to her beloved mum , Linda Porter, and so decided to add to her extensive tattoo collection with a new design.

And the poignant inking she chose is the Horus Eye symbol, which is an Egyptian god who is the protector of the other side.

The rocker got her first permanent inking when she still a teenager and now has designs covering most of her body.

Tracy who is still coming to terms with Lindas death earlier this year said: The most recent one is particularly special. I lost my mum but she is part of me now. I had her ashes tattooed into my skin, into a Horus Eye symbol, the Egyptian god who is the protector of the other side.

I have got full tattoos down my arm, my ribs, down the full right side of my body. Every tattoo I have got means something to me.

I had my first one at 17. I used to do modelling, so I had it on the inside of my lip, because it had to be somewhere that it wouldnt show. It hurt a lot I felt like I had gone 10 rounds with Mike Tyson.

Her son Jack Potter, aged 12, said: I like my mums tattoos, but I think she has got enough now.

Tracy and jack, from Bucknall, in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, was one of the visitors to the Staffordshire Tattoo Gathering held at the Kings Hall in Stoke over the weekend.

The event showcased the work of 27 tattoo artists, specialising in a variety of different styles, and also featured live music, a custom car show with American hotrods and lowriders, a bench press competition, exotic animals, and Star Wars characters including Storm Troopers and Darth Vader.

It also gave like-minded people the chance to mix together and show off their tattoos.

Warehouse operative John Fenton has his entire body covered in tattoos, including his head.

The 61-year-old, of Bentilee, told the Stoke Sentinel : I had my first tattoo in 1972. My brother was 10 years older than me, and he influenced me to get one. My first tattoo was a dagger, but it has been covered up since then.

I have got a full body sleeve, my tattoos go over my arms, my legs and my body. Having my ribs tattooed was the most painful. That was also the longest session I had, it took eight hours.

People used to stop and stare when I was walking down the street but so many people have got tattoos these days that no-one bothers anymore.

Joel Kirkham, of Silverdale, had a new tattoo added to his back at the gathering, which was done by Leek tattoo artist Hollie May.

The 28-year-old, who works as a hotel night porter, said: The tattoo is part of my life story. I wanted a Stoke-on-Trent theme, and then I have got a motorbike on it because Im a member of a motorbike club, and I have got a tent in the design.

I have always done a lot of camping, but for a while I was homeless and I lived in my tent.

I told Hollie what I wanted and she came up with the design. I have wanted it for years.

Hollie, aged 32, of the Old Smithy Tattoo Parlour, said: Joels tattoo took about five or six hours to do. Ive been a tattoo artist since 2010. I did the custom design in my own unique style.

Hollies husband and studio manager, Matt Wall, aged 42, said: I think the tattoo gathering is brilliant. Its great to meet and talk to all the different designers. This is a really good convention.

Tattoo removal company gets new equipment – Kane County Chronicle09.04.17

ST. CHARLES Vanishing Ink Laser Aesthetic Center, a St. Charles company that removes tattoos, recently acquired a new top-of-the-line laser, the Discovery Pico, the company announced in a news release.

The $80,000 piece of equipment, made by Italian company Quanta, uses two types of laser pulses, which allow for more accurate and effective tattoo removal, the release stated.

Only seven of the units have been sold in the United States, and Vanishing Ink, 2020 Dean St., St. Charles, has the only one in the Midwest, Quanta said in an email.

Vanishing Ink Laser Aesthetic Center which opened as Vanishing Ink Tattoo Removal has since expanded its laser services for aesthetics, such as scar reduction, wrinkle reduction, hair removal and mitigation of stretch marks or age spots, the release stated. The facility also offers facials and is a medical provider of Jan Marini skin care products.

Some patients see the work that we do as giving them more of a fresh start, rather than a medical treatment, co-owner Diane Gibson stated in the release.

Gibson is a certified laser specialist, the release stated.

This is why we invest in the most advanced equipment available to be sure of achieving the best possible results every time, Gibson stated in the release.

Texomans get Texas tattoos for Harvey victims – KXII-TV09.04.17

SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) – Modified Design Tattoo & Piercing in Sherman did what they do best to give back to victims of Hurricane Harvey: they inked nearly 140 tiny outlines of Texas on people Sunday, all proceeds going to the relief efforts.

“It means I actually got a chance to help someone,” said Courtney Gaines. “That $20 can help someone who lost everything.”

Each tattoo, and some select piercings, were $20.

“Really all you do is come in, get a small one inch tattoo of Texas, it’s $20, we’re trying to knock out as many as we can,” said Caleb Stone, who has been tattooing for seven years.

Cody Collins, who lives in Sherman, decided to put Texas on his wrist after seeing the event online.

“I donated, I didn’t feel like it was enough,” Collins explained. “We saw this pop up on Facebook and it piqued my interest, so I decided to dedicate part of my body to those affected by Harvey.”

Another customer, Courtney Gaines of Tom Bean, said she loves the nontraditional way of helping out.

“It’s a really good to come as a community together to help with the hurricane,” Gaines said.

All week long, Texomans have been helping victims of the hurricanecalled the costliest and worst natural disaster in American History–whether it’s taking a boat down south, hosting a fundraiser, or getting a tattoo.

“Bless them for what they’re doing and everyone in this community,” Collins said about the special tattooing.

The event was supposed to go on until 8 p.m., but there was such a large turnout that the shop had to cutoff the line at 4 p.m.

Mum arrested after 12-year-old daughter shows off tattoo – 9Honey09.04.17

Mother Emma Nolan and tattoo artist Brenda Gaddy are facing charges over the new ink. Image: Coweta County Jail.

A US mother is facing criminal charges after her 12-year-old daughter has been spotted with a large tattoo on her shoulder at her primary school dance.

According to a police report, an officer was called to the primary school after a teacher at the dance spotted the tattoo. The tattoo, of a large cross and the words Jesus Loves was in full view thanks to the girl’s school dance outfit – a strapless dress.

The teacher described the tattoo as being, ‘bluish green with Jesus written above the cross and loves written below’.

When police tried to establish how the girl had come to be tattooed there was initial confusion. The fifth-grader told police that her father made her get the ink. Later, however, she changed her story and said that it was her choice to get the tattoo and her father had nothing to do with it.

The mother, 35-year-old Emma Nolan, stated that the girl no longer sees her father and that she had no idea how it had come to be.

Eventually it emerged that Emma did indeed know about her daughter’s tattoo.

Indeed, she not only encouraged the girl to get the ink, she arranged for it to happen at a Super Bowl party back in March. Video taken at the party shows aspiring tattoo artist Brenda Gaddy working on the 12-year-old, plus two other children under the age of 18, while several adults looked on.

Lt. Jason Fetner of the Coweta County Sheriffs office said the story was nothing more than ‘bad parenting’.

“Each of the parents had a different story, and it boiled down to, frankly, just finger-pointing, Fetner told a news station.

“I think its unfortunate in that the child actually wanted to get the tattoo. Its not like the child was forced to get the tattoo; I think it just comes down to bad parenting.”

Nolan and tattoo artist Brenda Gaddy were later booked into the Coweta County Jail for tattooing the body of any person under the age of 18.

Mark Galvan Jr. Is the Young Fullerton Tattoo Artist Turning Around an Old Shop – OC Weekly09.04.17

Monday, September 4, 2017 at 7:56 a.m.

The 25-year-old running an entire tattoo shop.

By all accounts, Mark Galvan Jr. is still a pretty young tattooer. After all, the 25-year-old artist has only been in the industry for a handful of years, but hes already worked hard to put his stamp on an entire shop for the last half of his short career.

Two years ago, I took a job here at Explicit Ink with an old coworker, and we liked it but we didnt get along with the crew here, Galvan says. They had a whole weird dynamic here where theyd argue about stuff other than tattooing. They didnt like us coming into the shop with good portfolios and work ethic, and they wanted us to fail so most of them left. I was made manager because of my work ethic, and nobody liked that because I was half their age and just working as best I could. I hired my team here, and it was immediately obvious that the entire dynamic of the shop changed.

At this point, Galvan is on the verge of giving the Fullerton shop an entire name change and rebranding to help further erase the negative stigma and reviews that previous crews at the shop had unfortunately earned. But even as far as Galvans come in the last few years, it wasnt all that long ago that he was just a bored high school football player who was too injured to practice. Although it was an injury that effectively ended his athletic career, ending up temporarily sidelined eventually brought the young artist into the world of tattooing a decision which is clearly already paying off less than a decade later.

I was stuck in a wheelchair, but the coach would still have me go to practice to watch drills and everything, so Id usually keep a big stack of paper on me to draw on, Galvan says. One day, I was out of paper and hanging out in the shade under the bleachers, so I started drawing on my forearm and all my bros came over to see it. I dont know if they were fatigued or what, but they thought it was a real tattoo and thought it was cool. Ever since that day, I like that feeling of how cool they thought it was.

What started as a one-time occurrence because of the lack of paper quickly became a daily habit. Galvan started speeding through his school work in order to have more time to draw on his arms in class, and then the requests began pouring in from his friends. Since he always liked the reactions to his drawings, Galvan never had an issue with meeting the demands of his classmates an attribute thats carried into his all-around style of tattooing until eventually someone pointed out that he could be making art on people for a living in the future.

In the midst of a conversation one day, someone said You should be a tattoo artist, Galvan says. I dont know who said it, but I owe them everything. As soon as I got home, I looked it up and read about what its like to be a tattoo artist, and I knew thats what I wanted to do. I thought it was this amazing club or gang that I didnt have to fight anyone to get into, so as soon as I graduated high school I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

With a clear post-graduation plan in mind, Galvan explained to his family that tattooing was no longer full of convicts and drug addicts and received a small loan to get started before landing an apprenticeship at a shop known for churning out talented young artists. Although its obviously worked out for him at this point, Galvan has trouble believing that he landed such a solid learning opportunity given his complete lack of experience.

I walked in with my book of just these crappy designs and I dont know why they let me stay, but they called me up a couple of weeks later and asked me if I still wanted to do it, Galvan says. It was 12 to 12 for a whole year with no pay, but I did what I had to do for them and paid my dues. Some of it was legit, some of it mightve been illegal, but what paying of dues isnt? It all built that hustle into me.

Don’t stick to dull pastimes. . . play hockey, say these sprightly Aussie over-75s – East Lothian Courier09.04.17

THE only thing green about them was the colour of the pitch beneath their feet but these hockey players boasting an average age of 79 showed that they could still stick it to players young enough to be their grandchildren.

Australias Vintage Grand Masters Team warmed up for an international tournament by stopping off in East Lothian to take on a ladies team from Haddington Hockey Club.

The youthful Haddington team ran out 5-0 winners but were surprised by the fitness and skill levels of the visitors, who boasted an average age of 79 and had two 81-year-olds in their squad of 18 players.

Claire Colquhoun, match secretary, wished the visitors all the best in the upcoming Grand Masters Hockey European Cup, which Australia are competing in.

Claire said: It was a really good game.

The reason they are over is the Australian team are training for a European tournament.

They were travelling to the European tournament and they went to Ireland and then to Wales and had a few days based in Haddington.

They arrived on the Sunday [August 13] and played us on the Monday evening. Tuesday they were training and then they visited the Edinburgh Military Tattoo on the Tuesday evening.

The match, which took place at Haddingtons Mill Wynd sports pitches, arose when Allan Golightly, a senior team coach and Scotland Veterans Over-65s hockey representative, invited the Australian team to play in Haddington ahead of their guest appearance at the upcoming Grand Masters Hockey European Cup, which kicked off in Glasgow on Saturday, with the final taking place this weekend.

At the Glasgow based games, the Australian team expect to be pitted against other international sides from England, Netherlands and Germany among others.

Prior to visiting Haddington, the Australians had already played two games each in England, Wales and in Ireland.

Team manager Bob Rowley said the upcoming tournament was an important precursor to the World Championships in Barcelona in 2018.

The friendship between the two sides stretched beyond the hockey field though, with a Burns Supper dished up at the Golf Tavern, on Haddingtons Bridge Street.

A piper and the traditional speeches were given before wishing the Australian team the best of luck.
