EXPO // BEYOND GLORYBOUND (21.02 – 23.02)

Opening: February 21 Expo: February 22 & 23
KOP Artspace // Amerikalei 128 // 2000 Antwerpen

Ever wondered what the average person does after working hours? We started a survey and asked the notorious tattoo artists from tattoo shop Glorybound.
Now it seems they’re also involved with other creative activities, besides their traditional tattoo art. In February, from Friday 21 till Sunday 23, Max Dem, Levi Netto, Joe Dynamite, Jelle Keppens and Matias Canteros show their personal work during their exhibition BEYOND GLORYBOUND in our KOP Artspace.

In 2003, Joe Dynamite opened his shop Glorybound Tattooing. Over the years, his business has grown to become one of the leading tattoo shops in Antwerp and surroundings. Within their tattoo craft, the human body serves as a canvas. In their personal work, the tattoo artists of Glorybound look for other carriers to display their creative work. Art forms such as photography, illustration, painting and glass chipping will be shown in their exhibition.

Behold the glory BEYOND GLORYBOUND.

Jelle Keppens: with a street vision of photography, road riders, trash skate atmosphere and more, in black and white contrasts.
Levi Netto: with big acrylic painting on canvas, solid colors and simplistic lines remembering vintage graphics like American folk art and traditional tattoo.
Joe Dynamite: with his recent works in glass, using the technique of glue chipping in different size formats.
Max Dem: with watercolor paintings, inspired by 80s and 90s heavy metal graphics, horror films and his own style in tattoo.
Matias Canteros – tattoo artist from Buenos Aires and regular guest at Glorybound: with his acrylic artwork on canvas and paper, influenced by graphic design as well as sarcastic fake advertising and classic cartoons.
