Atomica Gallery is excited to announce Everyone’s Got One: A Skull Showcase in collaboration with their friends The Circle. Featuring work from a selection of Atomica artists and taking place in the beautiful gallery space at tattoo studio and lifestyle emporium The Circle, the showcase will focus on one of popular culture’s most iconic images: the skull. The opening night party also happens to coincide with The Circle’s two year anniversary; it’s gonna be a big one.

Loaded with a myriad of connotations, the skull has always been a source of inspiration for artists. From Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Skull With A Burning Cigarette’ to Damien Hirst’s notorious platinum and diamond-encrusted creation, they can be found in countless masterpieces. For Everyone’s Got One Atomica has curated work by a variety of artists who have also used the timeless icon as their subject… skull print

Each interpreting the skull in their own distinct way, the work on show will include Ramon Maiden’s re-appropriated vintage illustrations, detailed digital paintings from Tom Bagshaw, Nick Sheehy’s dreamlike characters, an exclusive limited edition print from Juxtapoz magazine cover artist Charlie Immer, plus much more.
