Michelle Vu

Best for Last Artist Profile

There is a chance you have seen Michelle's artwork and not realized it, many Calgarians carry it with them wherever they go. Anecdotally Michelle mentions that she is regularly hearing from people who have recognized her intricate and delicate line work adorning friends, acquaintances, and passersby. But she has been too busy doing her unique body art at Mission Tattoo Parlour to see for herself. 

Michelle's image in the Best for Last exhibition is very close to her tattoo work. Featuring a carefully crafted and designed composition with intense detail but still done very organically. It's a bold expression but with a feather light touch. On close inspection an added delight is that the soft gradients are created using your standard ball point pen. The ability to transform an everyday object into such a fine tuned instrument is transcendent – as is the art it is used to create.



See artwork at the Principles Office during our regular gallery hours of 2-5 pm Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Principles Office is on the 2nd floor of cSPACE King Edward 1721 29th Ave SW, Rm 210 Calgary, Alberta  T2T 6T7
