Pushing the Limit in Tattoos by Aleksy Marcinów

Like many artists working today, Aleksy Marcinów’s creative practice involves more than one artistic approach. Always striving to make his best work, he writes, “I am trying to spread my work [in] different fields, instead of limiting myself to one. As [for] medium I am using everything I can from canvas and paper to human skin and supercars.” Marcinów’s tattoos combine colors with elements of realism that seamlessly become bold, abstract designs. They too have multiple—and varied—influences that include French painter and sculptor Pierre Soulages and Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki.
