2000 Dragons by Don Ed Hardy

May 1 - May 27

Don’t miss the rare opportunity to see 2000 Dragons by the classic Bay Area artist and tattooist, Don Ed Hardy. This monumental 4’ x 500’ work was created in the year 2000 (a Dragon Year in the Asian zodiac, as is 2024!), and was a decisive turning point for Hardy, in both its scale and expansive gesture, as he had spent the previous four decades in near-daily practice with the obsessive precision of intaglio printmaking, lithography, tattooing, and careful watercolors. His goal to draw two thousand dragons with no preplanned composition freed Hardy to explore pure abstract elements along with recognizable forms.
