Temptu has a long history of creating limited edition body works of art with art world luminaries including Matthew Barney and Kiki Smith. To celebrate the New Year, Temptu collaborated with visual artist Pearl C. Hsiung to do a limited edition temporary tattoo.
2008 will be another milestone year for Temptu, as we open our first West Coast office and showroom in Los Angeles. As an artist living and working in Los Angeles, CA, Pearl was a natural partner for Temptu to design a New Year’s tattoo.
A SoCal native, Pearl did her undergrad at UCLA followed by study at Goldsmiths College in London where she received her MFA. Most recently her work can be seen on exhibit at Disorderly Conduct: Art in Tumultuous Times at the Orange County Museum of Art and at the Steve Turner Contemporary Gallery in Los Angeles.
