Greg "Craola" Simkins for Hope Gallery Tattoo

I hate Greg Simkins. Not in any personal way, it’s just the guy is so sickeningly talented. From his stunning, super detailed oil pieces and pencil sketches through to his freehand graff skills, he kills it every single time.

Over the last weekend, in collaboration with Serk, he painted a wall at New Haven’s Hope Gallery Tattoo home to tattoo artists including Joe Capobianco and Eric Merrill. As is to be expected the finished piece looked stunning. It would be good to see Greg do a bit more street work IMO as the guy holds his own with a can in his hands.
