DC SHOES EUROPE PRESENTS BURNING INK ART SHOW
“ALL THE DRAWINGS WILL BE BURNT AT THE END OF THE SHOW”
Following on from the success of the Burning Ink event in Paris, New York City and Berlin,
DC Europe is proud to be launching the 4th edition of the Burning Ink art show in London
(Beach Gallery, 20 Cheshire Street, E2), from the 13th to the 31st of March 2012 in
partnership with Kids love Ink Custom Tattooing owned by the very talented Charlie Shazer.
Bringing together a unique selection of world-renowned street artists, graphic designers and
illustrators, Burning Ink is a crossover event between the worlds of fine arts and tattoos.
Previous editions artists were: Ssur, SBTG, Jeykill, Supakitch, Koralie, Xghetto666, Prunelle,
Scien+Klor & Dean (123klan), Marok, Spoe, Jef & Kostek @La Boucherie Moderne, Chloe
Trujillo and more… curated by Erwann Lameignère.
The concept is as radical and unique as before: all the handmade drawings designed by
selected artists will be burnt at the end of the show. A very different concept to an
ordinary art show, no one can go home with the art in its hands. The only way for the
drawings to survive the flames is to be bought and inked into the buyers’ skin, making
each design a unique tattoo.
The first edition of Burning Ink was held in Paris at Jeykill’s “Bleu Noir”, the tattoo
parlor/gallery in Durantin street, Paris 18th. New York’s Burning Ink took place in Frank’s
Chop shop, an incredible barber shop, managed by a young team of creative blades,
located in the Lower east side, at Essex street, 19. Berlin’s burning ink took place in the
downtown venue and well known MadeMyDay collabroom, located at Torstrasse, 66 not far
from Alexander Platz.
