ART JUNQUI: Jason D’Aquino
Have you ever done a drawing that was above average on the difficulty scale? You used a normal size sheet of paper or maybe a 3×5 index card, I presume. Well feast your eyes on THIS.
Yes, that is an incredible work of art, done completely on a matchbook.
Jason D’Aquino is a renowned tattooist, but he is becoming more known for being a miniaturist – meaning he painstakingly creates his masterpieces on solely vintage pieces, and usually works with nothing bigger than a 1″x 2″ scale.
If you are in the Los Angeles area, check out his exhibition entitled Phillumeny on Friday, June 1st, 8-11 pm at the La Luz De Jesus Gallery!
