Exhibition Title: (Non) Traditional Tattooist

Exhibition Duration: July 14- October 11, 2017

Vernissage: July 14, 6-8pm

"(Non) Traditional Tattooist" is tattoo designs on archival paper
created by Eva Yuewang.  Eva received two intensive trainings in
traditional chinese tatto with a master in Los Angeles.  The
non-traditional narrative emerges from Eva's extensive training as a
photgrapher and painter when combined within the traditional chinese
tattoo genre.

Eva Yüe wang is a Chinese artist, living in Seattle, The United
States. She received a MFA in Fine Arts Photography in China and a MFA
degree of illustration at Syracuse University before beginning study
and training as a traditional chinese tattooist with a tattoo master
in Los Angeles.

Her artworks are often narrative conversations with viewers. Her
themes art surreal, expressed realistically but are more imaginative
than real life.

She likes to catch subtle emotional waves of human beings. The
characters in her paintings have paradoxical personalities. They are
sensitive but indifferent, innocent but ruthless, attractive but they
don't even notice that attractiveness.
