Artist Alexis Ross along with Tattooist Bert Krak created a special installation as part of the massive Beyond The Streets exhibition. Alexis Ross designed and art directed the installation, described on-site as follows: “Magic Touch is the name of this artistic expression celebrating the creative follies of Canarsie homeowners from the late 20th century – a sort of shade-tree tattoo parlour that might exist on your cousin Carmine’s back porch from a time when Cadillac was king and you picked your tattoo design off the wall.”
Bert Krak draws enthusiasts of the style from near and far, and Magic Touch provides a cross-section of the scene. This book documents hundreds of tattoos inscribed on site, with 50 pages of tattoo ‘flash’ art and atmospheric shots from the installation itself. Includes a 24-page mini-booklet.
