Burning Ink

Hosted by DC, Burning Ink is one of the coolest concepts out there, art is created by talented artists from around the world and tattooed onto the skin of buyers before the art is then burnt at the end of the week.

The lastest edition of the Burning Ink series kicked off at Milk Gallery in Istanbul last Friday 29th April featuring art by Ajay Bisset, Clyde Barrow, Dean 123klan, Éloïse De Guglielmo, Little Madi, Marke Newton, Frank Pellegrino, Cristina Petrucci and a huge host more. Their work was lovingly tattooed onto buyers skin by ROROFROSE, DRAMATIK and ILHAN BILIR.

After 10 days of the work being exhibited, the closing party for the event will be held this Saturday where all the artwork will be burnt – VNA are lucky enough to be jetting over to Istanbul for one night only to party with these guys and take some killer snaps of what the Istanbul art scene on the streets has to offer. It’s going to be big.

Burning Ink London

Our friends at Beach London Gallery & Kids Love Ink East are to play host to a truly unique style of show curated by DC Europe. Burning Ink has previously been held in Paris, New York & Berlin and works on the concept that no-one will be taking any physical art home with them at the end of the show, and instead all the drawings will be burnt, the only way for them to survive is if someone buys a design and gets it tattooed onto their skin!

The event will run until the 31st March and opens tonight.
