From Tattoo Art to Neo Impressionism

Charlie Spencer, Studio 21 Tattoo artist and owner, spends his spare time creating black and white pointillism artwork. Pointillism, a popular 19th century French painting technique uses small dots of pure color placed next to each other and when viewed from a distance tones appear to blend together. This style goes back to the neo impressionist art movement, Georges Seurat, being one of the most popular painters of this era. Charlie has chosen this style of tediously applying dots over and over with Micron pens to achieve the darks and lights of tonal value desired, creating great detail. In black and white pointillism the two dots placed next to each other create “optical mixing”  creating a perceived single tone. His artwork has been displayed at various themed art venues and events including Cornerstone Gallery and Studio 21 Tattoo Gallery.

Cannons Fired

With cannons exploding, beer flowing, aggressive ping pong battles in full effect, the “Salty Holograms” closing party equaled much success. Probably  the most interactive art show I’ve attended, Travis Jackson and Ryan Tino were offering the opportunity to blast off a custom made “faux” pirate canon with a chance to land the foam canon ball into an open pirate chest on the opposing side of the gallery. For every sunkin’ booty chest you were given the experience of screen printing a shirt of your own size and choice of graphic to take home. Black and white illustrations layered in a collage effect with vintage photos backed by hand painted murals and one off screen printed shirts, zines, and an assortment of other goodies lurked amongst the plaid and corduroy hipsters. Look forward to seein’ more of the guys work in the future for sure, the guys are always participating in Studio 21’s group art shows and fundraisers. Thanks for the beer n’ vegan pizza, count me in at the next event. Be sure to peep the http://twelve21gallery.com for futuristic good times next time you are in the Las Vegas Arts District.
