Project Dark Arts: Reborn

Welcome to Project Dark Arts: Reborn, an 18+ reverence of dark delusions, bizarre imagination and thought provoking artistic expression. This year includes 2d and 3d art, live tattooing, performers, body painters, food, drinks and more!

Welcome to Project Dark Arts: Reborn, Tampa Bay’s largest 2nd annual showcase of premium artistic talent from those who identify their creations with the aesthetics of dark culture. 

We’ve called on artists from all mediums to create emotionally enticing and provocative pieces, taboo imagery and challenging subject matter that embrace the darkest elements of self expression and emotional aspects of our human expression.

Since it’s so difficult to find a place that accepts and celebrates dark artists, we at Rougue Productions and Shadoe Images have decided to once again produce this exclusive event, one with a special emphasis on the strange, creepy, and macabre. Project Dark Arts is an event that strives to give dark artists that special place to display their work along with others that create within the strange.

This year’s event will allow attendees to be immersed in subject matter from beautiful to bizarre, sensual and seductive to the insanely distraught and macabre. These artists manage the ups and downs in life by creating art that comes from the moment where they’re in their darkest places…and now are finally able to share it with you in this uncensoredart and performance showcase.

2019 brings about exclusive content with the theme, “Dark Carnival” and is jam packed with dark visual performance art including live body painting, a dark burlesque, fire breathers, an enchanting live DJ, dark fashion runway show highlighting the beauty in darkness, delectable food, full liquor bar and even live tattooing.

Project dark Arts holds nothing back…so be prepared to once again step across the psychological threshold, out of the light and into the darkness of Project Dark Arts: Reborn.
