b. 1990, Charleston, SC
A-B M is an interdisciplinary artist and quadruple Virgo from North Carolina who specializes in illustrative, fine-line blackwork tattoos. A-B graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2013 with a BFA in painting, and has exhibited work in Baltimore, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Oakland. They began tattooing in the winter of 2014, learning and sharing skills of the trade amongst artists and friends on the east coast before chasing the sun to California in 2015. The necessity to integrate this intimate art form into a sustainable practice motivated A-B to perfect their craft in Oregon, where A-B is now a licensed tattoo artist in Portland working at Constellation Tattoo Collective.
A-B maintains an active practice of making drawings, comics, flyers, and objects from a home studio. In their free time, A-B ghost hunts, makes zines & mixtapes, plans road trips, and plays with their kitten Mosquito. Their artwork portfolio is online at ab-moore.com
