Legendary painter and tattoo artist Paul Booth, of Last Rites Tattoo Theatre, is opening up NYC's only gallery devoted to the macabre, erotic and surreal.

Last Rites Gallery's inaugural show, Transgression, curated by gallery director Genevive Zacconi, showcases artists ranging from internationally renowned sculptor and Alien designer H.R Giger to classical oil painter Shawn Barber, to tattoo-artist Vincent Castiglia, whose beautifully rendered watercolors are painted in his own blood. Designed to provoke thoughts and shatter taboos, Transgression will introduce viewers to 31 artists who change what we think art is.

Transgression opens on Saturday, April 5th, 7-11pm at Last Rites Gallery, 511 W. 33rd Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues (3 blocks from Penn Station), 3rd floor, New York, NY 10001. Show runs April 5th thru April 28th, 2008. More info at www.lastritesgallery.com.
