A while ago I went The Ink For Heroes Tattoo Convention in York with Kelvin Slack of Prophecy Tattoo/Black Heart Tattoo. Kelvin was kind enough to have me at his booth where I added the finishing touches to the portrait I had been working on of him. As usual kelvin was gathering a crowd with his amazing technical ability. I was jammy enough to be in the right place at the right time and subsequently ended up with a mention in top Tattoo magazine Skin Deep. CHEERS KELV! Check his stuff here. LINK
Here's what Kelvin was working on.
and here's me. That's not Kelvin in the background by the way!
It's not much but it made me smile. Thanks again Kelv.
"Dylan Lisle’s work maintains a contemporary dynamism through his old masterly representations of the female form. Knots and swathes of vibrant, passionate fabric envelope his sensuous figures, or otherwise are the subject of larger studies, which draw upon chiaroscuro, reminiscent of Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Vermeer and Rubens. His work is instantly approachable, engagingly serene and romantically charged; traits that have not gone unnoticed in the art world he inhabits.
Fresh from his first London solo exhibition, Dylan Lisle spearheads a modern movement of artists, whose desire it is to capture light in all its glorious subtleties, texture in its infinite tactile qualities and the female form in its evasive beauty." Hope Robertson, 2007
