Marcel Dzama

Let’s see how many Canadians I can post in a row (I forgot to mention Jessica Fortner is from Toronto). Below are paintings by Marcel Dzama, who is originally from Winnipeg and now lives in New York.

Delphine Courtillot

Love these paintings by Delphine Courtillot. I learned from her bio that she was born in France and studied at the same school I attended, here in Vancouver.

Regino Gonzales

Fantastic work by artist Regino Gonzales. Gonzales does so many things other than tattooing, to simply label him a tattoo artist would be inadequate.
