Biomechanical scrap sculptures
In search of inspiration and reference for my tattoo designs, I have created a series of sculpture projects that represent body parts, everyday items and half body figures (in collaboration with Jordan Oterski). The idea is to show how technology influences our daily lives, with metal, steel machinery and electronics hidden behind nice packaging and working in the background. We tend to not think much about how things work or how helpful they are, or even how dependent we are on them.
A Year later I created the vision of Mother Earth being overtaken by the cold metallic form of human technological progress and expansion.
The work was influenced by the creations of HR Giger and a post catastrophic vision of our daily life. In research for ideas and inspiration, I aimed to change the simple look of our normal daily life devices that are now packed with sophisticated technology. I started experimenting with mixed mediums. With some mechanical parts, a little expandable foam, DIY tricks and an airbrush, I came out with my first piece to be featured in the Gundry National Gallery at a local artists exhibition.
My next project was the Tattoo Art Exhibition.
This project gave me a chance to prepare and showcase some of my twisted visions of things that are such an everyday part of peoples lives.
Some of the pieces were showcased in other exhibitions, such as
Hive Arts Magic Weekend, which featured on BBC radio. Check out the video:
Once again, some were used as references for tattoo designs.
My next project was a collaboration with Jordan Oterski. 😊 https://www.instagram.com/p/BN6IrkXAkg4/
This piece was used as a reference for a tattoo design that Jordan tattooed on me. 😊
Eventually this sculpture was auctioned at Tatcon Tattoo Convention in Blackpool in the Charity Art Auction alongside pieces of art from other artists at the show.
The profits were donated to Blackpool Lifeboat Station
The next exhibition featured my collaboration with Anna Paprzycka, a documentarist and filmmaker. This was shown at Grundy National Gallery in Blackpool at a local artists exhibition. 😊
I created my vision of a futuristic TV breaking out from behind prison bars to visualise the story from Annas short Documentary about an ex convict who changed his life around and created a TV show to educate people about scam awareness. The show become very popular in Poland.
The next exhibition at Hive was ‘Unlocked’ Expressions of Solitude, which featured artwork created by local artists during the 1st Lockdown.
Through the lockdown I started a new adventure with 3D printing and began learning to use Zbrush 3D design software to combine my skills to create the next level of tattoo #Reference.
Tattoo Raffle With Shamack. A big congratulations to Craig who was the winner of Shamack’s tattoo raffle this year!
As many of you have seen he held another tattoo raffle this year with 100% of the contribution going to the much needed focus of the depletion of tress around the world.
