AmandaKingProfile

I am a conceptual visual artist from New York, troche cialis and focus my work in the realms of drawing, store decease printmaking, discount and letterpress. I obtained my Bachelors of Science locally at Skidmore College for Studio Art (and Biology) and earned my Post-Baccalaureate degree at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

A major body of my work encompasses the personal experience of the death of my father in his battle against neuroendochromatic cancer, and the evolution of my home life as a single child throughout this ordeal. Because he opted for radiation injections as a treatment for his cancer, my frequent use of radiation masks and suits express the dilemmas within that choice. In addition, I choose to create work that includes actual images from photographs of my childhood, because of the helplessness, inferior, and innate connection to this experience.

Although I’ve grown up doing this with my father, exploring abandoned places has more recently become a serious hobby of mine – perhaps because it helps me feel close to him. This has lead me to get a bit into photographing for reference images to then interpret either through drawings or paintings.

I also enjoy indulging in being an eclectic person, which led me to begin a tattoo apprenticeship a little over a year ago. What can be more honorable than permanently putting your artwork on someone else’s body – to be admired and treasured? It was a happy accident that I fell into this trade and absolutely love how it has influenced the variety in my style of drawing. I find myself constantly researching current tattoo artists, their flash designs, and how I can adapt that style to my work and expression.
