Valentin Hirsch: Symmetries

In stock (49 items available)
Valentin Hirsch's first monographic book highlights the transition from drawing to tattooing as an inevitable next step in his evolution as an artist, which is defined by consistency and reinvention in equal measure. Starting in the early 2000s, Hirsch worked dot for dot to construct his monstrously graceful ink drawings and etchings, a technique he compared to a tattoo artist's. In 2010, he took the leap and switched from tracing paper to human skin. With an essay by Gunter Damisch and an interview with the artist by Uta Grosenick.
