Transplanted New Yorker Kurt Fagerland is a multi-talented artist who executes his craft across a broad spectrum of visual media. As a painter and illustrator, he works in oils, watercolors, acrylics, and spray paint – “just about any kind of paint I can get my hands on.” He is a sculptor and carver as well, typically creating works of wood or stone as well as custom rings. Of late, Kurt has found himself working with graphite on canvas and in mixed media. His works have been displayed at private showings in both New York and Atlanta.
Kurt began his career as a tattoo artist with a working apprenticeship under Cort Bengtson at Cort’s Royal Ink Tattoo Studio in Patchogue, NY, developing a solid clientele in his two years there. He then embarked on a period of travel, doing guest sessions at a variety of studios in the U.S. and abroad. Kurt is currently tattooing at Kingdom Tattoo in Decatur, GA.
