Tonight will mark the opening of poster designer Luba Lukova’s exhibition Umbrellas, Social Justice & More at the La MaMa etc. gallery. Known for her visually striking, social commentary imagery, Lukova has established herself as one of the most distinctive image-makers working today.
“A recent review in The Boston Globe observes: “Luba Lukova’s posters and illustrations have punch, and they are laced with such feeling that they often merit a second look. Her work doesn’t wrestle with the classic riddles of high art. It is, as graphic art should be, strong and pithy but its messages are not always simple.” (Cate McQuaid, When graphic art becomes high art)” –
I love her seamless interpretations delivered in bold graphics and bright colors. The brainwashing graphic is just brilliant! I could not have imagined a better visualization of that concept.
