Hi! My name is Lokhaan and I'm an illustrator and tattoo artist at Vampire Disco Party. You can find more about this project here.
Lokhaan was created in 2007 but I really started as a full-time freelance artist in 2014.
In 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, I decided to learn a new craft and add tattooing to my list of mediums.
As a tattoo artist I can experiment more with style, subjects and tone. It allows me to have a space of exploration since the only thing that matters, rather than keeping my work cosehive is that someone likes my drawing enough to wear it on its skin. Free from client work Lokhaan has become less of an alias for someone who wants to make commercial art with dark imagery and more of a ground of exploration where dark surrealism collide with pop culture and graphic design.
In 2020 I decided to push Lokhaan in new stylistic territories by levelling up my understanding of the fundementals (anatomy, values, colours, perspective..) all the while learning new techniques from concept artist masters to boost my workflow.
Inspirations come from the music I love, the way people dress, horror and sci-fi movies from the 70's through the 90's and from the gazillion formidable artists out there and those that have inhabited our reality for a time.
You can support me by buying local made prints and goodies at the Vampire Disco Party store
