Georgie Harrison - (I'm) Nobody's Baby

September

RESIDENCE: AKA, Berlin INSTAGRAM: @tattoos_by_georgie BOOKING CONTACTS: tattoosbygeorgie@gmail.com ABOUT: Georgie Harrison is a Berlin based artist and tattooist of ten years. She has been a resident artist at AKA Berlin since 2012.

Previously a painter focussing on realistic figurative work, Georgie’s new body of work is a study of reduction and suggestion in the form of three-dimensional line drawings.

Despite the stylistic change, the works maintain continuity with previously explored themes pertaining to the female form and the feminine condition. The works also draw heavily on the stylistic evolution of the artist’s tattoo career.
