Shay Bredimus is a painter and tattoo artist from Phoenix, AZ who currently lives and works in Long Beach, CA. His visual expression was cemented by a catalyst brain injury early in his life. Bredimus’ work is informed by his experience as a tattoo artist and his formal education of classical painting, leading him to invent his own practice of “brush drawings”—a combination of drawing and painting and use of wet and dry mediums of tattoo ink, wax crayon, and semi-translucent drafting film. With languid and emotive mark makings, a deliberate transition to oil and color signifies a shift in his personal narrative and journey, showcasing his desire for honest expression through “self creative behavior”.
