A figurative painter and renowned tattoo artist, Shay Bredimus employs languid and gestural marks using tattoo ink on drafting film to portray spontaneous and personal moments of his models. His classical training in portraiture is evident, to which he has added aesthetic influences of Japanese tattoo and Ukiyo-e prints. Shay lives and works in Long Beach, California, and is represented by Koplin Del Rio gallery in Culver City, California.
