This painting depicts a scene in a tattoo studio with two characters, one of whom is intently tattooing the other while holding a cat. Krzysztof describes the piece as having a grotesque quality, with the nude woman possibly supplying the ink for her tattoo from her heart. She is also accompanied by another small creature on her shoulder that looks on with wide eyes.
Krzysztof Iwin is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland. His body of work is largely figurative with elements of surrealism. Showing frozen fragments of a reality that does not exist, Krzysztof attempts to capture the menacing, sometimes macabre beauty of the search for meaning.
