Art is a difficult thing to accurately describe but, when I have to, I like to describe my work as ‘Stills from a postmodern, science-fiction movie set ten minutes in the future’ and my process as ‘Re-examining Bits and Pieces of What’s Been Discarded in the Haste of the Late 20th Century and Sticking Them Together’. Mostly because it just sounds good to be honest.
“Paul Talbot is often cited as one of the world’s leading exponents of a graphic tattoo style that inspired a whole scene like Andy Warhol art dragged thru 20yrs of dirty rehearsal rooms & beer soaked punk gigs”Guitar.com
”In a sea of 'sameness' his instantly recognisable style - that combines street art influences with contemporary portraiture and graphic design - emerges as a fresh voice with a clear vision. The underlying theme of his work speaks to a far broader audience. Paul Talbot gives us permission to do not wait for the stars to align. If the road doesn’t exist, make your ownArt & Coffee
One of the things that makes tattooing the most powerful art form around is that the iconography is constantly evolving. Tattooists throughout the ages have, traditionally, drawn art that – almost always – involved some form of social comment based on the era or culture they were living in – whether they were aware of it or not.
And I’m not really any different. I’m just a Good Old Fashioned Rebel Challenging the Notion that Tattoo Iconography is Relevant to a 2oth Century Analogue, Comic Book Reading Suburban Rock’n’Roll Kid from the Middle of England.
My process is very simple. Just decide on what you want and drop me an email. If I think your idea will translate well into my style I’ll email you back and we’ll arrange everything for my first available appointment(s).
Tell Me What & Not Why
All tattoos are meaningful in some way. But, why you want your tattoo and the meaning behind it really doesn’t help me when I’m making your artwork. In fact, it can make the design less affective and more difficult to put together. I prefer a rough outline of your idea first. Then we can talk about the details together as we make your artwork. It’s easier this way and a little more ‘Human’.
