TAMEZ


Having worked alongside Stephanie for longer than anyone else in my career I have had the opportunity to witness how she fearlessly blends her history and identity into her art, admiring this, I am constantly inspired by the way she blends tattooing and art , not leaving any of her practices separate from one another. Her approach to making art and creating work drives me and informs my own personal process, helping me strive to keep a synthesis between the different languages I employ across various mediums.

—Thomas Hooper

HOOPER


What I find most interesting about Thomas Hooper’s work, is his interest in ideas of layers. He explores a very textural and meditative process as he journeys with his exploration of mediums . In his process he has achieved a very authentic method that engages us with his deep visual language.

New webstore, Apparel and Prints via Deathwishinc

Last month I launched a new webstore on my friend Jacob Bannon’s record label and distribution website www.deathwishinc.com. I am truly honored to get the opportunity to collaborate with such incredible label, having been a fan of the music that Deathwish has released for many years it is very surreal to have my art now made available through them. Thank you to everyone that has ordered so far, I really appreciate the support, the blankets sold out quick as we kept the production numbers super low on everything as to minimize over stock and waste. European customers can also benefit from Deathwish’s eu distribution and cheaper mailing prices on import tax etc.

Adventure Time with Jeff

 

I’ve been tattooing Jeff Zellner for the past 8 years, we started at Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn NY when I was a resident there, now we’ve both relocated and I’m extremely grateful that he continues to travel to get tattooed by me. Both hands, sleeves and back are by me, his chest panels are by Michael Aul and the torch on his sternum is by his wife Lana Zellner.

I am extremely grateful for the trust he has given me and the opportunities to explore new ideas on his skin that he continues to give me the freedom to do.

These photographs were taken yesterday at the end of a session on his back.

Thank you Jeff!
