Atomica Gallery and Things&Ink present ‘Miniature Ink II’
23rd SEPTEMBER – 2nd OCTOBER 2015
ATOMICA GALLERY POP-UP, 55 NEAL ST, SEVEN DIALS, WC2H 9PJ
An exhibition of miniature original artworks from over 100 of the world’s leading tattoo artists!
All featured artwork available to purchase on a first-come, first-served, basis… Kewpie dolls the medium for 2015!
Atomica Gallery and Things&Ink are delighted to announce Miniature Ink II, a group exhibition celebrating contemporary tattoo artistry, featuring miniature original artworks from over 100 of the world’s leading tattoo artists. Opening in Seven Dials on Wednesday 23rd September to coincide with the London Tattoo Convention 2015, Miniature Ink II is also being held to raise awareness for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, with profits from sales being donated to the charity.
Miniature Ink II follows the overwhelming success of 2014’s inaugural Miniature Ink, in which leading tattoo artists contributed postcard-sized original artworks to the international group exhibition. For the exhibition’s second edition, Atomica and Things&Ink have introduced a twist. Rather than using paper as their canvas, this year each of the contributing artists have been asked to decorate an iconic object within the tattoo community: a kewpie doll.
With tattoo culture exploding in popularity and becoming established as a mainstream art form, Miniature Ink II will once again showcase the breadth and variety of artistic talent within the community. Reflecting the medium’s inherent accessibility, each of the kewpies will be available to purchase at the same affordable price on a first-come, first-served basis, providing the opportunity for tattoo-lovers and art-lovers alike to own an original work by some of the most sought-after names in the industry.
Alex Binnie, Annie Frenzel, Anthony “Civ”Civarelli, Antony Flemming, Big Sleeps, Clare Hampshire, Deno, Drew Linden, Friday Jones, Guy le Tatooer, Hannah Pixie Sykes, Jody Dawber, Jondix, Keely Rutherford, Lal Hardy, Lauren Winzer, Lou Hopper, Michelle Myles, Nikole Lowe, Rachel Baldwin, Rose Hardy, Sarah Carter, Sasha Unisex, Wendy Pham plus many more.
T-shirts featuring artwork from the exhibition will be available to purchase at the opening reception and throughout the exhibition (provided by Yr Store) and blank decorate-your-own kewpie dolls. Atomica Gallery will also have a selection of limited edition prints, original artworks, ceramics and books and other hard-to-find/easy-to-love artist-made rarities available for sale.
