This is Kevin Hughsam, a 20-year-old student at FGCU who has made a name for himself in the tattoo business. With a background in fine arts, Kevin incorporates the styles and paintings of famous artists like Salvador Dali and Vincent Van Gogh into his work.
There are so many great artists here in SWFL, you just have to know where to look. Downtown Fort Myers hosts an art walk every first Friday of the month, here local artists go to show off their work. We came across Kevin at Kava Culture’s “New Wave Sundays”, which is another great event to find new artists. Other ways to discover new work is to visit your local schools. FGCU’s Art Gallery is open to the public and hosts many shows throughout the year.
Keep your ears open and your eyes wide, because you never know what you’re going to find.
