Priorities - Design Theory for Visual Artists of all levels
Seeing something beautiful is a feeling before it is a thought. The visual brain determines what we look at before we can think about it.
which is exploitable by visual artists.
I have been tattooing for 12 years and consider myself deeply rooted and specialized in abstract designs. In it’s nature, abstract art does not depict any specific, easily understood subject matter and for that reason has to use all kinds of tricks to get just as much attention as imagery of easily recognizable subjects like flowers, faces, letters, etc. In solving this problem, I have found a narrative to explain a variety of visual tricks that help me to capture attention and reward it every step of the way until a strong impression is made.
In this seminar I will explain the ways in which our brains tell us where to look and what to remember before our personal taste kicks in. These triggers, once understood will not only guide you to successful, effortless and confident looking compositions, but will also render the world around you with greater depth and clarity. It’s a great way to find a unique and personal handwriting within the graphic language of visual art. It’s a tool to find your personal style.
This Seminar is geared specifically to the tattooing medium but is applicable across the board of visual art and design.
It is not a seminar about biomech or abstract art or requires a deep understanding in these subjects.
