10 YEARS OF GRINDESIGN - THE ART OF ROBERT BORBAS
"I have always been attracted to old medieval and Renaissance etchings and illustrations," declares Robert Borbas: his inspiration thus comes from the great masterpieces of art history, but his style is the epitome of contemporary on the international scene. This Hungarian artist has made Dark and Horror his unmistakable hallmark in this book (300 plates divided into 5 sections), an anthology which is a must-have for those who love his tattoos: crammed full of detail, technically impeccable and a source of infinite inspiration.

GENESIS BY JOAO BOSCO
Skulls, dragons, snakes, sinister creatures, maidens and representations of death are the recurring subjects in the book, which the artist offers as a way to revisit and memorialize the old fantasy style. Joao describes this book as a window into the intricacies of his mind, a view of the ghosts which crowd his imagination in the moment he starts to create a tattoo. In fact, Genesis was chosen as the title in order to capture this great artist’s creative gestures, and allow readers to participate in the birth of so many amazing works on skin.These images are not presented in any particular thematic or chronological order. On the pages of this volume you’ll find graphic combinations – references to the ambiance and visions from which Joao’s works on skin emerge.

"More than anything else, I’d like for people to understand the book as a way to revisit old times. I’m certainly not trying to reinvent the wheel, but yeah, I’d really be happy to see people looking at the ideas, subjects, themes and magic of those old fantasy times. I consider this book to be a tribute to the past, to keep the flame alive in the present. If I could describe this entire book with one song, I’d definitely choose Return to Fantasy by Uriah Heep". (Joao Bosco)

THE VOLUME IS ENHANCED BY A FOLDER WITH 4 HIGH-QUALITY PRINTS THAT ARE READY TO BE FRAMED.
