Inspired by my love of Art Nouveau and the Absinthe posters of turn of the century Paris, Absinthe Gypsy reflects the gypsy heart of the tattoo artist, who's craft allows them to travel the world "Gypsy DuMonde".
About the Artist
- Raised on a diet of Ray Harryhausen films, H. P. Lovecraft novels, comics, Walt Disney World rides and other Florida tourist traps, Pooch paints images that seem to exist in a bizarre afterlife. His art is a visual cocktail of these influences—with a shot of lowbrow culture—shaken and stirred, then served up in a souvenir tiki skull on the Day of the Dead.
Tattooing since 1994, Pooch's work has been featured in numerous galleries, books and magazines throughout the world. www.poochisland.com www.alteredstate.net
