10 Questions to Lukas Zpira

Posted by Disha Singh

Disha: Lukas you are as explained by BMEzine Encyclopedia; body modification artist, nomadic performer, documentor of the contemporary fringes and one of the major figures of the contemporary underground. Do you agree? And what more can be added to introduce you to the audiences in India? Lukas: It’s quite a flattering introduction! Yes, I have always been involved in many kinds of subculture. I am what we can call a transdisciplinary artist, meaning I work on a lot of different mediums. I started doing different artistic experimentation back in the 90s before starting to work on the body. I also do photography as well as documentary and spoken word. I think what can describe the link between all my works is the idea of working with the limits, the boundaries, and the social impact of a work. I thank you for the opportunity to present my work in India which is a country I was always interested to visit and never had the chance to see so far. Portrait by Maria Issa

Tattoo artist Tamas Dikac from Hungary has inked this incredible tattoo design on the person’s leg. I am really amazed by this realistic tattoo design that seems as if the creepy crawler is waiting patiently to attack its prey any moment.
