Living with Art

I love huge, beautiful pieces of art, but I don't have a wall at home big enough to hang anything large, so we've started a little trade with our friends over at the Clic Gallery. This is one of my favorites by Lulu DK, and the reason I really want to meet her. Her collages are beautiful and trippy at the same time. Click below or more info and to see this one close up as well as the other artworks we've hosted.

About Lulu 
Best known as the creator of LULU DK Fabrics, Lulu de Kwiatkowski grew up in New York and the Bahamas. She received a fine arts degree from Parsons, and spent five years in Paris studying trompe l’oeil painting. Years ago, she began using her painter’s eye and her penchant for hunting out unusual color combinations to create a bold multimedia melange of painting, drawing, and photography. Her striking compositions play with scale and color, recalling Frida Kahlo and Peter Beard in their detail and imagination. Exotic fish swim past dining room furniture and Victorian erotica figures mingle with tree-sized bright red lollipops in these surreal, energetic landscapes. Proudly autobiographical, the sumptuous collages trace De Kwiatkowski’s development as an artist and celebrate farflung locales including Peru, Tanzania, Myanmar, Morocco, India, Bolivia, and New Zealand.
