Polyc SJ, on the other hand, began cutting paper as a child. Born to a painter father who did not allow him to play with brushes as much as he wanted, Polyc SJ instead turned to cut-outs and has been making collages for as long as he can remember. “It began with making collages of cartoon characters I liked,” he says. “I spent most of my time watching cartoons as a kid and it was fun recreating my favorite characters.”
Polyc SJ is now an internationally renowned tattoo artist who works predominantly in Europe, constantly flying to different cities where many are eager to meet him. His tattoos are like puzzle pieces that come together to create something new. He calls it “polygonal-pop”. His unique characteristics, however, are not limited to polygonal collage-esque geometry.
