Nick Bubash: Warhol

CAL_20130222_bubash_main

After watching the Thom DeVita episodes of ViceTv’s groundbreaking Tattoo Age series, I decided that I should head to Pittsburgh this summer and get tattooed by the incomparable Nick Bubash. Earlier today I saw that he’s going to be having a solo show at the Warhol. This summer.

I like it when everything lines up.

From the Warhol Museum:

 The Patron Saint of White Guys That Went Tribal and Other Works, the first solo museum exhibition of work by Pittsburgh artist Nick Bubash features a recreation of the artist’s studio which focuses on a large group of found object sculptures.  These sculptures reveal a playful approach to the artist’s practices and sardonic sense of humor.  Bubash has exhibited extensively across the US since 1989, with work exhibiting a wide range of media and diverse stylistic approach.  Bubash is also a nationally recognized tattooist and is the owner of Route 60 Tattoo in McKees Rocks.

I think this is going to be one of those ‘worth the commute’ sort of things, so if you can make Pittsburgh part of your travel plans, you might just oughta!
