The Eastpak Gallery in Carnaby Street, London launches a new exhibit this Friday, March 11th by Italian born Claudia De Sabe.
After studying art including researching Victorian pre cinema art and graffiti, Sabe moved to London to pursuit her love for tattooing. As a full time tattooist in London, Sabe produced her first set of Flash prints in 2006 (a tattoo design printed or drawn on paper or cardboard) and received a great response not only from the tattoo crowd but also from the general public.
Sabe’s paintings have since been published in numerous magazines with prints sold worldwide. Her desire is to reach towards a wider public of individuals who are not necessarily moved into getting heavily tattooed but yet still attracted to the visual vocabulary of timeless human feelings.
“I’m looking forward to work with Eastpak because for me it will mean stepping out of my comfort zone and it offers the opportunity to engage with the wider public, people that are not necessarily into tattoos. I would like my paintings to be hung quietly in people’s houses and to be appreciated when they are looked at, instead of screaming out loud ‘look at me’”, Claudia says herself.
Not only for the Flesh is a collection of 8 glicee prints, archival quality on gorgeous Somerset velvet paper that will be on show at the Eastpak Gallery from Friday 11th March. Prices range from £35-£100, originals available on request.
Launch: Friday 11th March 2011
