Samo, owner of Playdead studios, is necking coffees at a rate of 3 to my 1….and I drink a LOT of coffee. We’re discussing the retrospective of PlayDead’s work surrounding the 4th anniversary and I need the coffee because I’m exhausted just hearing about all the hard work.
Opening on Friday 12th April at the Coastguard Studio is the King Ship Tattoo exhibition of contemporary Japanese motifs. Called ‘Mark Of The Orient’ with around 100 pieces of work for sale, it showcases the work and vision of Aaron Willet – owner of the Kings Ship. His style draws inspiration from ancient Japanese tattooing and culture with the exhibition pieces being created in watercolour.
