Magic Touch – The Book



Magic Touch is an artistic expression that celebrates the creative follies of Canarsie homeowners from the late 20th century – a sort of shade-tree tattoo parlor that might exist on your cousin Carmine’s back porch from a time when Cadillac was king and you picked your tattoo design off the wall. In this installation, celebrated New York tattoo artist Bert Krak has reproduced sheets of flash inspired by his late friend and mentor Tony Polito, while Alexis Ross has continued to secure his footing as the consummate shill, who is neither tattoo man nor street art man.”
