Miniaturist Jason D’Aquino contributed 16 pieces to the group show Hard Time Mini Mall, curated by the Red Truck Gallery. His graphite sketches are richly detailed, and fit onto the inside of matchbooks. The Shooting Gallery displayed his work with magnifying glasses, so that viewers could observe the minutiae of every drawing. When he’s not creating fine art of pulp novel sirens on found vintage paper, Jason is a tattoo artist in Buffalo, New York at Blind Dog Tattoo. He was kind enough to send us some photos of his work as well as some pics of him prepping for the show (a good shave is necessary to put your best face forward). Hard Time Mini Mall is running through May 4 so there’s still time to catch D’Aquino at his finest!
The artist also has a solo show coming up with us in the SG Project July 6-27, 2013.
