SAN FRANCISCO, CA – 1AM is pleased to present, “Connotations”, opening on October 18th, from 6:30 – 9:30 PM, “Connotations” will showcase works inspired by tattoo art by Jesico, Tony Duong, and Mark Heredia. Expect to see colorful adaptations of traditional and non-traditional tattoo designs as well as complex, mix-and-match compositions showcasing tattoo iconography from around the globe.
‘“Connotations”’ is a chance to revel in Tattoo relevance” says Bay Area Native, Jesico. For these three artists, Tattoo is about endless study and first hand experience so that it becomes second nature. The compositions in “Connotations” reveal the artists’ devotion to studying the great artists before them and preserving Tattoo as an art from. In the words of Jesico, ‘“Connotations” pays homage to the repetition, creativity, intrigue and wanderlust that is Tattoo.’
Over the course of the last decade, Jesico traveled around the world piecing together bits of knowledge passed down from greater artists in order to develop his own cohesive style. Jesico has designed tattoos and produced art from Japan to Switzerland, and now resides here in the Bay Area making tattoos full-time. Tony Duong and Mark Heredia are tattoo artists at Hold Fast Studio in Redwood City. Both artists work diligently, honing their craft while making their mark in shops all around California.
