After the publicity stunt (here and here) he made tatooing Scarlett Johansson two months ago, Fuzi will be on January 18th at the HL gallery in Stockholm. The Parisian writers planed a show but also a two day live tattoo session. Below the press release of the event.
HL Gallery is proud to start 2013 with FUZI UVTPK, one of Paris most legendary and notorious graffiti bombers and also the inventor of the “Ignorant Style”. His visit in Stockholm will include an exhibition and two days with live tattoo sessions at the gallery.
“We belive in people that is going their own way and that´s also how we like to run HL Gallery. Therefore the we thought FUZIs idea to open up a temporary tattoo studio during the exhibtion was perfect!” Jonas Sandström, Curator at HL Gallery.
(b. 1975 Paris) grew up in the Paris suburbs. For fifteen years the French artist dedicated himself with heart and soul to writing his name on trains. He is the creator of the ignorant style wich is a naive ,childlike style of painting that goes back to the New York graffiti scene of the seventies.FUZI is co-founder of the legendary group UV (Ultra Violent). He currently lives in southern France where he writes, paints, photographs and tattoos.
FUZI´s “Ignorant Style” is a mix of the eternal human themes – violence, love, sex combined with his background of street life, graffiti and gang culture. But there is always a second degree in the designs, humour and irony is an important part of his style.

During the opening day and the day after FUZI will do live tattooing, if you are interested in getting one yourself please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
