Video | Skin – Is Tattoo Culture High Art?

In Ryan Hope’s debut film, Skin, he attempts to find high art in a low brow culture. Video on the other side.

Featuring contributions from Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and Raymond Pettibon and in association with Dasha Zhukova’s Garage Magazine, the film is a beautiful visual essay from the frontiers of contemporary British art.
