Internationally renowned for breathing new life into tattooing, Ed Hardy has created a startling array of artwork “Beyond Skin” over the last four decades.
Hardy’s drawings, prints, paintings, and newest pieces in porcelain effortlessly cross boundaries. Integrating the iconography of every thing and every place, from classic tattoo flash and Hollywood cartoons to the Old West, from Asia and Polynesia to Medieval Europe, Hardy achieves a weird beauty by mixing the grotesque, humorous, subtle, and flamboyant.
