"What Is It?" A collaborative seminar with myself and Markus Lenhard (@luxaltera)


This in-depth, highly developed seminar is the brainchild of renowned biomechanical tattooers Markus Lenhard (@luxaltera) from Germany, and myself, Adrian Dominic (@adriandominic) from America.  

By dissecting the question that is as old as the subject matter of biomechanics and abstract art, the seminar will delve into the deeper workings of how one can approach and master this seemingly alien subject matter.

in the last 10+ years Markus and I have spent many, many hours discussing and dissecting the topic to help each other to better understand the nature of the images they design in several media (digital and classical painting, tattooing and sculpture). By doing this for so long they created a visual and language based narrative to describe something most find hard to put into words.

Making the subject matter less elusive and abstract, this seminar will help students to further their own understanding of the topic and make it easier to find their own language within the world of the abstract and purely aesthetic. Which in turn may lead them to, not only find it easier to stimulate interest for this style in their own clientele but surprise themselves with a previously untapped source of creativity. 

The seminar will be utilizing a descriptive library of images of photography, sketches, drawings and tattoos
which Markus and I have been collecting and sharing for years in order to communicate new and old ideas and to stimulate growth and inspiration for each other. 

Students will be guided through a linear study of the language of biomechanics which will be concluded by a
presentation of a digital collaboration between Markus and I narrated by us to drive home all the points made throughout the seminar. 

Required material: Pen & paper for personal notes.
Handouts: Seminar imagery with notes by the artists
