Scott Campbell is an heavy talented artist (and tatoo artist) from NYC.
I first saw his work at The Flat - Massimo Carasi in Milan, for the exhibition The Occult Show in 2008.
About his new body of works on eggshells he says: " The eggs came about pretty naturally. The first one I made was for a gift. I spent hours drawing on the inside of an egg shell and then glued the pieces back together, smoothing over all the cracks. The result was a perfect egg with a painstakingly detailed drawing hidden inside. I really liked the idea of someone breaking it to see the drawing inside. There was an amazing tension in realizing that by breaking the egg, they've shattered something that I had obviously labored over for hours. I guess it gives a nod to the notion that sometimes our enjoyment of a thing inevitably destroys it."
If you're so lucky to be in LA you can feed your eyes with his solo show Noblesse Oblige at Oh Wow til 22nd of April...Enjoy...
