Cities Inside Expressive Brush Strokes, by Jieun Park

Jieun Park paintings in brush strokes 10

Looking as if she’s distilled the very spirit of painting into her large brush strokes, Korean artist Jieun Park makes paintings of cityscapes inside emotive strokes on the canvas. It’s as if with one swing of her brush, or with the splattering flick of its bristles, she’s created an entire city like magic within the resulting coat of paint.

A Body of Modern Art: Painterly Tattoos

Over the past decade the art of the tattoo has continued to expand, adding new designs further and further from the traditional body art of the past. Amanda Wachob is a New York based artist who’s pushing that limit further than we’ve ever seen, taking work normally reserved for the canvas and placing it boldly on the body. Her painterly works blur the line between fine art and body art, placing vibrant paint like brush strokes on her clients. Currently working with Daredevil Tattoo in New York, you can see more of her creations including quick fading ‘Conceptual Tattoos’ at
