Lina Viktor is a New York-based fine artist & painter from London who uses patterns, symbolism, and iconography to address grand archetypes and concepts of infinity, greatness, and transcendence. Her acuminous paintings are composed of original black, white, and gold patterns that are gilded with 24-karat gold directly onto the canvas, amplifying the ornate sensibility that informs the framework of her riotous, powerful images.
Since her recent emergence, she has exhibited her work alongside Andy Warhol, Takashi Murakami, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Peter Beard, Tom Sachs, & Ryan McGinley, and has sold all of her paintings to date. (source)
Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover
Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?
Realize that anyone who tries to put you down about your appearance is assuming that it is your job to please them visually. Once you realize that it isn’t your job to be visually pleasing to anyone, ever, it becomes very hard for anyone to make you feel bad about yourself.
