Chasing the Dragon - The practice of inhaling Heroin

Vans recently kicked off the Dragon Chasers Exhibition at Leftfoot Gallery in Taipei. The exhibition contains a mixture of art aswell as some of Vans' most iconic releases in recent memory. The theme of the show is based around the Asian cultural concept of "Dragon Chasers", which is often used in order to signify the Asian attitude of attempting to exceed their limits, chasing something that is impossible. The art was created by Singaporean artist Jahan and will run until January the 1st 2008.

This was of specific interest to me becuase the particular style of art in the exhibition was very much in a similar vein to that of the style i am determined to carve into my arm in the form of a tattoo.

I have been thinking, something along these lines -

Whilst incorporating this symbol -

Untill next time. Adieu
