The Tattooist turned Contemporary Artist

-Wingnut- has been immersed in the realm of artistry throughout his entire life, dedicating over two decades in the tattoo industry. Along this artistic journey, he achieved the World Record for the Smallest Tattoo of a Painting (a Monet), and earned many awards and featured spots in prestigious publications.

 

Transitioning from tattoo machines to brushes and canvases, -Wingnut- introduced us to his creation, “The Red People.” They have captivated global audiences, notably making a significant impact at Spectrum Red Dot Miami Art Week 2023.

 

Embodying the profound message, “No Face, No Race, We're All the Same,” -Wingnut-'s art transcends boundaries, resonating deeply with audiences across the globe.
