Art By Dale was a culmination of Western Sydney-based illustrator Dale Bigeni’s formidable career so far. Bigeni’s work represented an engaging intersection of the traditional and the contemporary, as he calls on his skills as a graphic artist to echo and elaborate on traditional tattoo culture. The inspiration Bigeni draws from tattooing does not stop at the medium’s traditional subject matter, although his work does regularly feature the roses, skulls and wide-eyed damsels that comprise the hallmarks of tattoo culture. He is also driven by the concept of ‘forever’, designing works intended to leave lasting impressions and create a permanent and resounding bond between himself as an artist, the works he produces, and the audience they are intended for. The exhibition launched at aMBUSH Event Space on June 20 and the exhibition continued until June 25.
