Black and Grey Realism
Wellington, New Zealand
I am a tattoo artist based at The Gallery Custom Tattoo in Wellington, New Zealand. Best known for my dynamic and vibrant colour tattoos of NZ native birds, colourful flowers, portraits (of people and animals), and reproduction of classic paintings as tattoos, I also love working in black and grey.
I was born in Czechoslovakia under communist rule - a time and place where individuality and creativity were potentially dangerous.
After the fall of the regime I was able to attend university, but was still expected to study a "proper career" so I studied mechanical engineering.
It was only after I traveled to new Zealand and made it my new home that I could finally pursue what I really love - art.
