About the Artist & Exhibit

Local painter, tattoo artist, and artisan, David Kern will be premiering his latest show, “Literatur Trash Polka,” in the Yellow Wall Gallery for the month of April. For this series of innovative works, David has united his own artistic style and vision with the Trash Polka movement currently taking place in the world of European tattooing. Combining realistic images with gritty, smudged and splattered streaks of color, Trash Polka seeks to capture a veritable dance of chaotic motion and powerful emotion in still images.
These evocative exhibits will be available for viewing and purchase through Friday, April 17 in the Yellow Wall Gallery!
