Shay Bredimus

Shay Bredimus is an accomplished realist figure painter and tattooist originally from Phoenix, Arizona. He received a BFA from Emily Carr University in Vancouver, BC and his MFA in painting from Laguna College of Art and Design in 2008. He is represented by Koplin Del Rio Gallery in Culver City. As a figurative painter, Shay employs languid and gestural marks using tattoo ink on drafting film to portray spontaneous and personal moments of his models. His classical training in portraiture is evident, to which he has added aesthetic influences from Japanese tattoo and Ukiyo-e prints.
