Social Justice 2008
12 Posters by Luba Lukova
This collection swiftly, deftly, and ably showcases Lukova’s masterful use of metaphors and symbols to express themes that include peace, war, ecology, immigration, and privacy. Her distinctive style and vigorous visual imagination flawlessly distill issues such as these into deceptively simple, yet formidably brilliant images, images that not only transfix, but that have the power to become indelible. Lukova’s portfolio captures many of the complex issues our society faces today and yet each poster speaks to the viewer in an accessible and honest way. Surrounded by a case featuring hundreds of Lukova’s preliminary sketches, this portfolio can only be categorized as a tour de force. Writer and social activist Margaret Scarsdale writes the accompanying essay.
