It’s already been a year since the “Ignorant Style” flag bearer, Fuzi, UV, TPK, settled down in Barcelona. The streets of the city quickly began to show signs and despite the constants trips out of town he takes due to his profession as a tattoo artist, some neighborhoods in the Catalan capital were “tattooed” repetitively by the name and style from Ultra Violent Crew.
Germán Rigol has immortalized some of his misdoings and assembled them into a story adorned in the spectacular style that characterizes the Barcelona photographer and filmmaker’s productions. It’s a story about the “Ignorant Style” Barcelona invasion by Fuzi, from the sea level, to the highest points in the city, and to its most cryptic streets.
Melbourne based photographers Ryan Cookson and Michael Danischewski have teamed up to produce a new video portrait of Fuzi UV TPK.
Throughout the 1990’s, French artist FUZI grew up in the suburbs of Paris on a diet of graffiti and gang culture as part of the prolific crew UV TPK. In the mid 90’s, he pioneered a childlike yet brutal style of graffiti known as ‘Ignorant Style’. In the last few years, he has transitioned from graffiti to tattooing and developed an international following. With clients such as Os Gemeos, Diplo, Justice and Scarlett Johansson, he continues to travel around the globe, making his mark and exhibiting his work.
Documented on a recent trip to Australia, FUZI gives an insight into his current working practice and an uncompromising look at his time in France during the mid 90’s.
