Baby Tattooville ’14: Gift Bags

Even though Baby Tattooville founder Bob Self explained that his vision for the gift bags is that they are “souvenirs of a remarkable weekend,” any visitors would say they are much more than that. They are a bounty of remarkable art, including 3 foot by 4 foot signed giclee print of the Art Jam painting, original pieces from Joe Sorren, Jeff Soto, Eric Fortune, Miss Mindy and Brian Smith. In total, there are more than twenty items including limited edition prints, vinyl figures, books, original […]

Baby Tattooville ’14: Art Jam!

Bringing together 14 accomplished and sought after artists in the lowbrow art world is not easily done, and a feat worth noting all on its own. But having those artists collaborate on a single piece of art, creating it in a day and a half, then have prints signed and distributed all within a weekend is nothing short of miraculous. AM was on hand to catch the entire process, from the blank canvas to the last ten minutes when the piece was laid flat to allow […]

Baby Tattooville ’14: Show & Tell

It is Saturday afternoon, its 100 degrees and Baby Tatooville is turned all the way up. The event is in full mingle mode as attendees join and speak with artists as they create the personal works for this year’s gift bags. Besides getting a glimpse of the painters as they create, as people work through the room, they are greeted by the artists offering to sketch for them or sign prints, books or other memorabilia. Below are pictures including Brandi Milne sketching for a collector, […]

Baby Tattooville ’14: Secret Store

Every edition of Baby Tattooville includes a “Secret Store” where attendees (in order of their seniority at the event) are allowed to purchase art merchandise and even original works form the participating artists. The highlight of this year’s setup were paintings that were used for this year’s print set including an stunning piece from Joe Sorren (seen above). Take a look below at more shots of what was available… See full coverage of this year’s event here. Discuss Baby Tattooville here.

Baby Tattoville ’14: “Through The Looking Glass” @ Riverside Art Museum

Every year the city of Riverside, California plays host to Baby Tattooville, it is one of the highlights for the town and an unmistakable part of the personality of the event. The separation from Los Angeles and its art scene is part of what make the event so unique. The attendees are taken out of their environment and plunged into a Baby Tattoo world, populated by lowbrow artists, their creations and the people who love them. Each year, the Riverside Art Museum puts on an […]

Baby Tatooville ’14: Things Start to Get Intimate at the Artist Panel

Perhaps the most notable thing about Baby Tattooville is how personal it is. Unlike any other event on earth, attendees are invited to spend time with the artists, watch them create and in general everyone gets to know each other. What better way to get things going then to have the event organizer Bob Self introduce each artist, have them each say a little about themselves, their experiences with the event and what they plan on doing for this year’s event. Official participants this year include Brom, Laurie Lee Brom, […]

Baby Tattooville ’14 / Interviews: Eric Fortune

With Baby Tattooville coming up in a couple weeks (see associated museum show), we’ll be bringing you some interviews with the participating artists. First up is another Q&A session (see 2009) between AM and Eric Fortune. Severe angles contrasted by a hazy atmosphere are the hallmarks of the Columbus, Ohio based artist’s work. He was recently featured on the cover of Hi-Fructose, and he is coming off recent shows at Copro Gallery, Gallery Nucleus and Roq La Rue. Check out the full interview below, but be […]
