I was very excited to get back in the studio for the first time in two years to continue my exploration of the Human Canvas project–this time with a Leica. It germinated in my mind over 20 years ago and I’m not nearly through with it yet. Abraham Joffe and his crew were in from Australia to film the day’s work as well,which was long, tiring and wonderful.
On Monday I was in Las Vegas to sign Human Canvas prints for the new Natural Wonders Gallery opening in New York. Later the gallery hosted a Meet the Artist reception. Many thanks to the gallery staff for setting this up and all the people who attended.
Tattooing is an ancient art & in Thailand it started with Buddhist monks, who believed sacred texts gave them protection. Thai icons such as tigers are now very popular, but are not powerful unless they are surrounded by the proper mantras.

We have just added “Human Canvas” to our list of offerings on the Art Wolfe Website.
The Human Canvas Project is an elevated new work from Art Wolfe. For several years now Art has been working on nude figure studies inspired by his lifelong work with indigenous cultures. This work combines the beauty of nature’s creation of the human form together with an artist’s expression of graphic elements drawn from 30 years of photographing nature and cultures throughout the world.
The collector’s edition book HUMAN CANVAS is the triumphant culmination of this project & it is now available for pre-order. This 13×15 inch monograph is presented in a custom cloth wrapped clamshell. Included with the book is an 11×14 inch collectors edition print signed by Art Wolfe. For all pre-sale purchasers, you can choose two prints. Only one print will accompany the book once it is for public sale.
