bits of inspiration – #25.

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I’m sharing work by Mexican artist, Dr. Lakra (Jerónimo López Ramírez). I was working at the ICA in 2010 when the museum exhibited his first solo show in the U.S. and I’ve been a fan of his work ever since. Dr. Lakra is an acclaimed tattoo artist and has made a name for himself in the contemporary art world with his illustrations of tattoo-style drawings over vintage prints. The New York Times profiled his work in a great 2011 article that you can read here. Happy cinco!
