Fallen Heroes Tattoo//Art, a tattoo studio in the creative hub of Parkhurst Johannesburg, is well known for offering customers a memorable experience, which leaves patrons permanently marked with beautiful artworks that they can wear with pride. From portraits to abstract works, the seven artists, hand picked by the owners of the studio, take their talent in traditional art forms and modify their approach to etch these works onto skin.
With several requests for commissioned pieces from art lovers frequenting the studio, and the inevitable longing that any true artist feels to put paint to canvas, the natural progression was to open up a space for them to display the works – in all of the mediums that they do not get to use day to day in their craft.
The evening of the 1st of November sees the launch of “Thanks for Looking” at Fallen Heroes Tattoo//Art, where the work of all the Fallen Heroes Artists will be up for purchase, at what promises to be a stand out event at the start of the Summer season.
To add to the excitement of the evening, FH will be auctioning off a collaboration piece combining the art work of all 7 Fallen Heroes Artists. Proceeds of this colab will be donated to CHOC, a charity organisation that aids children suffering with Cancer.
This exhibition is positioned for both the art connoisseur as well as the entry-level art lover.
Because of the varying styles that each artist feels an affinity toward, members of the public can expect a veritable feast for the eyes.
Going forward, the gallery space will host various exhibitions by artists from all around the country,
keeping things fresh for art lovers in Johannesburg. Those that aren’t in the area will not lose out however; certain works and prints will be available for purchase online.
