ON THE DOWNLOW
One of the highlights at October's convention is the Hardy-Youth-the-Mash-Up Group Art Show. The one and only Andreas Coenen has curated a selection of art from over 50 artists giving their interpretation of Ed Hardy's famous Panther / Rose Mash-Up. Not only will it feature art but also photos of actual collector's wearing Ed's panther/rose tattoos. Rumor has it this art will be made into a book. We can't wait!
