Krish Trece, was born in Girona, Spain in 1988. She always showed interest in the Arts from a young age.
One of her major interests growing up was visiting art museums, looking through art history books and indulging in every graphic novel she could find. This created a huge interest in the arts and led her to continue her high school studies specializing in the art field.
When Krish moved to the capital of Spain to pursue her education, she discovered a new art form, the Art of Tattooing.
“I’m grateful and lucky to have had the opportunity to discover the world of arts at such a young age and grow up surrounded by paintings and imagery of surreal worlds, where the boundaries of creativity are nonexistent and where the arts are truly treasured. Because of this, I became obsessed with learning more and discovering new artists.
I have always been mesmerized by oil paintings, sculptures and all the classic culture in general. I started off in the illustration field until I moved to Madrid when I was 18.
As soon as I arrived in the city, I got my first tattoo. This opened my eyes to a whole different world, I was instantly captivated with the creativity, culture and technique of this new field. I still am to this day!”
«As tattoo professionals, we are asked to continuously develop and create unique pieces on a daily basis, this is why I believe it is key to take the time to continue learning and growing as an artist. I feel it’s important to invest time in discovering new techniques, to always be curious, put love in what you do, never limit yourself, take everything you learn and admire and use it towards your growth.
All these things together I believe reflect positively in our profession and make you who you are as a creative individual.»
She has had the opportunity to showcase her unique Neo Traditional style and work extensively at notorious Expositions, Conventions and well-known tattoo locations. She has also been published, interviewed and featured in various notable tattoo magazines, artist lists and tattoo editorials where she continues to popularize and promote her unique style and tattoo studio.
I have now been tattooing professionally for over a decade and I’m truly thankful to have experienced so many great moments like traveling as a guest artist, attending various national and international conventions around the world and to be able to showcase my work so extensively.
It has been hard work, but little by little I’ve seen all my dreams come to life. I’m so appreciative of everyone that has believed in me and given me the chance to grow as an artist.
I’ve always been inspired by nature’s variety of beautiful harmonious colors, with a special preference for the warm, deep and earthy tones. I found them visually soothing and elegant.
My goal was to create a characteristic color palette with what I love and inspires me, which is nature and classic art. I wanted it to be recognizable, cohesive and represent my aesthetic in an individual way.
After some time, I started realizing I had a pattern and not only that, my clients would reach out and specifically ask for certain tones I used. World Famous Inks provided me with the opportunity to find the exact selection of distinctive tones I envisioned, now these beautiful warm and earthy tones represent my creative vision and style in such a personal way.
My love of nature is recognized and respected by making all their inks vegan, non-toxic and animal cruelty-free.
Neo Traditional (as many other styles) is a style which is eternally evolving. It’s made out of infinite layers and is part of a spectrum of subtleties which make each artist unique in this one style and as an individual artist.
Classic artforms such as Art Nouveau, Art Deco and the Romanticism movement are only some of the various art styles that have influenced the Neo Traditional tattoo as a unique practice. Neo traditional consists mostly of solid linework, subtle dimension, delicate detail work and deep tonalities with infinite variations depending on the artist.
Neo Traditional tattoos are mostly known for their elegant aesthetic that often depicts botanicals, portraits of women, animals all with lavish ornamentals and decorative compositions that harmoniously flow with the body placement.
This is such a versatile style that so many incredible artists out there are creating their own adaptations.
My Neo Traditional style is inspired by classic art and nature, by the romanticism of history and myths. Ornamental beauty, powerful female portraits surrounded by botanicals and the force and purity of nature. If I had to define its aesthetic in a word, I would name this Neo traditional variant: Neo Romantic Style.
Award winning Krish Trece aspires to continue showcasing her distinctive techniques, expertise and aesthetic as a Neo Traditional artist.
To continue the exposure of such a unique style, Krish has curated and organized the Solace of the Myth NYC (2022) and Solace of the Myth Madrid (coming this 2023) Art Exhibit featuring notable Neo traditional artists from all around the globe to further the exposure of this style in the country.
I really got into photography while wandering around looking for references I could take to then use in my work, especially in nature environments like flowers and greenery that caught my eye. Then I discovered my love for street photography. Having the opportunity to live and travel to some amazing and diverse places, I really enjoyed capturing moments of the day to day life.
Now every walk I take, I have the camera with me because you just never know! You can find something unique in the most mundane places and so much character and energy in people’s simple daily activities. There’s a lot of beauty out there and this helps me savor every moment I live.
My love for abstract expressionism painting came when I was exploring different creative approaches, it made me feel liberated. I can really get into a different mood and value a completely distinct creative form. They seem so contrasting but you can really learn so much and compliment each style with any activity you take on.
