Gerald Feliciano is a painter and tattoo artist at Leathernecks tattoo and East Side Ink in New York. His art career began at the Virginia Commonwealth University where he was exposed to an array of different artists and art mediums. He later became obsessed with tattoo art, its history and its traditions. As a young tattooer he’d always respected and admired artists who painted and used other mediums to express their form of style. Feeling that it was imperative to be well rounded, he started researching art history and found inspiration in the late 1800’s Art Nouveau and art Deco periods. “I love the way Art Nouveau translates to skin, the usage of line weight, color contrasts, and movement really gives a tattoo life and body. What i enjoy the most is the challenge of taking traditional tattoo subject matter and creating something that fits in the realm of nouveau.” says Gerald.
“Equinox Solstice” is a collection of works inspired by the passing of time and seasons. Using limited color palettes, Gerald plans to give the viewer a sense of seasonal time and mood.
The works will be on display in our gallery until May 14th.
