Artist Tina Lugo become intoxicated with the world of cartoons, comic book characters and video games‘ flashing imagery early on. Her subjects resemble greatly those from the animated world of her childhood, but are infused with sexuality and the artist’s recognizable tongue-in-cheek humor. Tina Lugo uses her striking figures and complex narratives to uncover suggestive and controversial elements in pop culture of her past. New body of work by the provocative artist will be on display at Stone Malone gallery in Los Angeles. Growing Pains exhibition will present works that explore problems of teenagers in a modern, highly sexualized world.
