Birds Eye Tattoo and Art Gallery

Birds Eye Tattoo & Art Gallery  presents Featured Artist George Perkins in December. A self-taught artist who was born and raised in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri, Perkins lives there still with his wife, three teenage sons, tween daughter, a princess pit bull and an anxious boxer. While painting with oils and acrylics is his primary focus, he also enjoys sculpture and woodwork, and frames his paintings with reclaimed wood, often burned or stained.

Artist Statement: “I paint what my eye finds beauty in. Sometimes there is beauty in the torture of life. I find the tenderness in the pain of a broken heart and the anticipation of tasting a full glass of whiskey. Beauty brings with it color and memory, snapshots of passing time. When I look around the world, I realize that everything was someone’s passion, someone’s art, and we take joy in what others create. Since I have made art my life’s work, I have found more pleasure in a normal day. I can’t wait to start my next project, and then again, and then again …”
