We are excited to present works by Skeemer Chorne in his first gallery solo exhibition “Keeping it Indigenous”.
Skeemer is a Chicago based visual and tattoo artist in our Pilsen neighborhood. His work is very much inspired by our Cultura and Chicano experience. With imagery tied to the very essence of his roots, Skeemer creates works that not only speaks to our history of peoples, but also to the connection of the present Chicanx identity.
Please join us on Friday, May 3rd / 6-10pm
for an opening reception with Skeemer Chorné. In addition to his exhibition pieces, Skeemer will have new merchandise from his Que Fancy Apparel collection.
Show runs, May 3rd thru June 2nd
More About Skeemer:
“I grew up an artist. My first form of entertainment was paper and a pencil. I quickly picked up interest in other mediums such as sculpting, painting, and even some graffiti. I was introduced to tattooing in high school, but wouldn’t take it seriously as a profession until a few years after graduating from college. With a BFA in Multimedia and Animation, and growing up on Chicago’s lower west side, I have been exposed to a wide range of influences. I am heavily inspired by the styles of artist like Todd McFarlane, Chaz Bojorquez, Freddy Negrete, and Frida Kahlo. I also draw from traditional Japanese, Aztec, and Chicano Black & Gray. I have always focused on custom tattoo work, and have had my own custom tattoo studio since 2011.”
