ABOUT.

NYA IS A TATTOO ARTIST BASED IN SOUTH LONDON. WHO TAKES INSPIRATION FROM TRADITIONAL TATTOOING AND INCORPORATES IT INTO HER OWN UNIQUE STYLE OF WORK.

 

NYA'S WORK OUTSIDE OF TATTOOING IS A COMMENTARY AND RESPONSE TO THE MORE MELANCHOLIC AND ALL-CONSUMING EMOTIONS THAT WE EXPERIENCE THROUGHOUT LIFE, APPROACHING THE TOPIC FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF SOMEONE WHO HAS BATTLED WITH DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF MENTAL ILLNESS SINCE A YOUNG AGE. NYA EXPLORES THEMES OF ISOLATION, EXISTENTIALISM, SOLITUDE AND YOUTH; UTILISING COMMON GROTESQUE THEMES INSPIRED BY ERO GURO NANSENSU AND CINEMATIC GORE, JUXTAPOSING THEM WITH VIBRANT AND SWEET 'KAWAII' IMAGERY, THAT VIRTUALLY REVERSES OR TRIVIALISES THE DISTURBING PAIN PORTRAYED, WITH ITS OVERWHELMING INNOCENCE AND JOVIALITY.
