Internationally renowned for breathing new life into tattooing, Ed Hardy has created a startling array of artwork "Beyond Skin" over the last four decades. Hardy's drawings, prints, paintings, and newest pieces in porcelain effortlessly cross boundaries. Integrating the iconography of everything and every place, from classic tattoo flash and Hollywood cartoons to the Old West, from Asia and Polynesia to Medieval Europe, Hardy achieves a weird beauty by mixing the grotesque, humorous, subtle, and flamboyant. An ideal gift for all who appreciate the mastery of art that defies generalization; a scintillating overview of an artist who has tapped the pulse of our time. 10" x 12-7/8". Hardcover with jacket. About 200 color illustrations. Text in English, German, French, Spanish and Italian.
