Chris Conn

After over ten years in this business I find it's easy to get a little jaded, so it's always amazing to see new work that gets me inspired. Lately I've seen so many artists come out of woodwork with art that is just jaw-droppingly amazing, like Chris Conn. Former tattooist turned painter- his work is a mix of tattoo imagery, soviet propaganda graphic sensibilities, and demi-monde lushness. I adore it.
