French-born Bugs rose to fame through his unique tattoos – a blend of art deco, classical, and cubist styles. His tattoo aesthetic is represented in his paintings, nudes that explore different techniques and formal composition. Bugs latest collection, entitled Purity in Motion, opened last night at Sacred Gallery in New York City. The work will remain on view through May 29, 2011.
