The creative process starts from chaos, so to design the final work it is important to reorganize all the information to create the final design.

Large format tattoos with natural and tailored strokes
For Abel Miranda, the best way to express his artistic perspective is through large format tattoos, inspired by the way paint reflects naturally on the canvas.
To achieve that naturalness of the line, simulating even drops and splashes, each work is first represented on fabric, so that it can then be transferred to the skin in the same way that artisans and tailors work in their workshop to create the designs. which will later be presented to the public.
