Tina Lugo at Mishka ~ Friday, February 20th

TinaLugo-LA-Flyer-4x6

This Friday, February 20th Мишка Los Angeles will be featuring artist Tina Lugo at their shop on La Brea. Lugo — born and still living in Bronx, New York, has a sexually charged and very dark sense of humor. Her love for cartoons informs all of her work, and she cites Takashi Murakami, Toshio Saeki, Hanna Barbera, Henry Darger and Japanese animation as influences. Her art subverts both erotica, which we expect to be transgressive, and what are usually considered innocuous forms of art and entertainment that actually carry sexual undertones. In Lugo's violent world, chicks bleed candy and horny devils tease terribly tumescent men. Check out a couple examples:
