We were blown away by the tattoo art of Koro, a delicate balance of the figurative meeting the abstract, the exploration of the ink and colours through controlled calculated stages, resulting in pieces that seem to flow and come alive on the body.- In his own words, “the purpose of my work is the balance and coexistence of the figurative element with the abstract expressionistic aesthetics.”
Originally from Greece, Koro moved to France in 2017, before eventually landing in The Netherlands at the end of 2018. He now works as a resident at AD Pancho Tattoo Studio in Utrecht, but he’s also a guest artist in other studios around Europe.
We asked Koro to share some of his favourite places in his adopted city…
You can find out more about Koro’s work on his Instagram profile. As Koro explains, “it’s all about a metabolic state, a field of action and reaction, that leads to balanced neutral energy, timeless, without dimensions.” His work focuses on “the inherent tension between contrasts (organic/geometric, painting/drawing, use of complementary colours, stencils/freehand).”
One thing is key through it all: Trust. He says, “the trust of a client is needed to create a unique piece that flows with his body and personality.” If you’re up for it – and lucky enough to get a slot with him - let us know and share your photos!
