Huck x O’Neill present: The Working Artisans’ Club: part four Expanded Eye
We meet art duo making new roads into the art and tattooing worlds with their tactile approach…
Some people are built to create – to shape their future with their own two hands. The Working Artisans’ Club is a celebration of that fact. Fourth in our six-part series comes art duo Expanded Eye, who are pioneering a new creative verve that mixes custom tattooing and fine art installations. In 1952, with a needle and thread in one hand and eyes firmly on the surf, Jack O’Neill invented the wetsuit, so that he could stay out in the water longer. His simple ambition led to an extraordinary future, both for himself and the surfing world as a whole. The Working Artisan’s Club is the next chapter of that story. It’s about the makers of today, and the future that they’re shaping. The Working Artisan’s Club, a week long exhibition presented by HUCK x O’Neill, opens at 71a Leonard Street, London, September 2013.
Two more to come, then the week long event at 71a coming this month..
