“I think that all ideas, even figurative images, can be represented by simple abstraction. The importance lies within the energy of shapes, the energy of lines and dots.”
In the tattoo world, it is commonly proclaimed, that skin is a canvas. Within Aga’s work, this saying stays not only a flat adage, but a representation of the idea: You can literally see expressive brush strokes on the bodies of her clients. Fitting to that impression, Aga comes from a background of painting, linocuts and lithography.
She has no specific style, but her art has always been minimalistic, monochrome and linear. Since Aga is working with tattooing, figurative designs have intruded her portfolio. The reasons for this were mainly requests of clients. Anyhow, she still transforms the images to carve out more the idea, which stands behind it, and to show less the actual shape of the object.
“I’m coming to Nepal, because it is one of the few places in the world, which I would like to visit. The Himalayas and the far East were always the settings close to my heart.”
Aga, who works in Paris at Art Corpus, cannot really vocalize very particular expectations from Nepal Inked and express herself about this in clear words. All in all, she would cherish times of “just watching, being, feeling and exchange“. Also she would like to learn more on Nepal’s culture, art, spirituality and life. She has always been inspired by those ideas within her whole life and especially creative work. Aga really hopes to meet artists, who have different concepts on ideas of body, tattoos and designs. From this, she hopes to find new inspirations for her art:
“Inspiration is everywhere, so I hope to return with new experiences and new inspirations from Nepal.”
