AKA Tattoo Collective

Opening New Space in London
Posted by Gestalten—01/2013

The AKA project started in Berlin as a multidiscipinary space, which merges different crafts by various artisans, photographers, painters, perfomers, tattoo artists, silk screen printers, and more. Now the creative collective is opening a new space in the city of London. Hidden in a private Dalston ground floor residence, you will find the same artists involved in the Berlin project along with a special resident London team.

For the opening, AKA London presents a very special group show of the represented tattoo artists, curated by Jon John with unique work commisioned especially for this occasion. The event will take place on January 18th, 7-10 pm.

This is an invitation only event, please RSVP here or at wetattooinlondon@gmail.com. The AKA team would be delighted to share a drink with you on ground floor of the house. Forever: The New Tattoo, published by Gestalten, features work by a number of the AKA crew, including the curator of the exhibition, Jon John.
