27. Takahiro Kitamura on LA Horitaka
My name is Takahiro Kitamura, I’m the curator of this exhibit, Perseverance, and this is a piece by LA Horitaka that we photographed in Japan. It’s a beautiful phoenix and such a great example of the Tebori hand tattooing style, it’s such a great example of the Horitoshi family style. And it’s also – I love this look—where the back is nokeburi, which means “no background”, and then has these sleeves that kind of frame it – it’s such a great, solid look.
