Tag: Baby Tattoo

Baby Tattoo is an independent publishing company that was created in 2003 to share the unusual works of then-up and upcoming artists and counter culture. Featured here, the publisher also hosts a number of events for art lovers, such as their popular Baby Tattooville annual retreat. Co-curated by its president Bob Self, Baby Tattoo recently celebrated over 10 years with its exhibition "Baby Tattoo: Carnival of Astounding Art". Currently on view at the Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA), the exhibit highlights the pioneers of Lowbrow, Pop Surrealism, Pinup and other such works that have graced its pages (and ours).
Stephanie Inagaki truly is a reflection of her art, and her art imitates the eclectic life around her. She is a Japanese artist living and working in Los Angeles, who we’ve previously featured here, and a well traveled individual with influences borrowed from various world cultures. Her charming studio is like a temple filled with these souvenirs, photographs of friends, her favorite art books, even her furniture has a deeply personal history. All of it provides the inspiration for her revealing and abstract charcoal self portraits. We caught up with her to learn more about why she exposes herself this way.
