The parallel universe of Milanese artist ( of German origin ) Anna Neudecker aka ”La Bigotta” ( nickname that means the ppposite of just what she depicts ), it is populated by strange characters, which reminds Grandville and John Tenniel’s illustrations. In her artworks La Bigotta reveals a romantic soul and a love for vintage spirit, mixing modernity with Victorian era style, minimalism and gothic charm making every tattoo a unique piece. The artist says: “owning something unique is more romantic: when I tattoo a subject will belong only to that person”, she explains, “just like the vintage collectibles that I like to find in flea markets”.
Her original Kafkesque characters have also captured the fashion world, such as the eclectic designer Jil Sander, who was completely fascinated by her works, proposing to collaborate in the creation of a leather bag, subsequently sold in a charity auction in New York. La Bigotta, thanks to its peculiarity, is one of the most famous and sought after tattoo artist.
