The first book of Ramon Maiden's considerable body of work

Dandy delinquent, artist and wanderlust king, Ramon Maiden has acquired a dedicated following on both sides of the Atlantic for creating that rare thing--a totally original, recognizable aesthetic derived from the traditions of tattoo. Working with old religious prints and magazines, Ramon usurps them with startling inkings which add a whole new dimension to images which might otherwise have been consigned to extinction. Madonnas with serpent tattoos, photos of male torsos in vintage medical books overlain with mystical imagery, and 1930s pinups smiling sweetly yet inked with dragons and daggers, all suggest another, very contemporary, dimension. Maiden is being increasingly fêted, with recent solo shows in NYC and London.
