Tina Lugo: Subterfuge At Screaming Sky says
Screaming Sky presents SUBTERFUGE, a new exhibition collecting the work of Tina N. Lugo! SUBTERFUGE shows characters in midsts of deception and foul play, showing that nothing is as it appears to be…

Born and raised in the Bronx, NY, and alum of the School of Visual Arts, Tina lives and works in Portland, OR creating lush and grotesque paintings on enamel and plexiglass. Tina’s work has gained an incredible following in both the art world as well as social media due to her high level of craft and her work’s confrontational and satirical beauty. From her bio:

"Inculcated by waves of Saturday morning cartoons, characters portrayed in comic book literature, and videogame culture, Tina Lugo became instantly infatuated with the bright colors of the animated world… Lugo lists as her biggest influence the Ero Guru Nansensu art movement of Japan—a name comprised of fractions of the English words erotic, grotesque, and nonsense. The movement focuses on eroticism, sexual corruption, and decadence, all themes salient in Lugo's work. With the complex compositions of her paintings, often it takes a few moments before the viewer sees the nudity or eroticism in her paintings, something she thinks eases people into the sexual nature of her pieces."

In addition to Tina’s original works on our walls, we will also feature some of Lugo’s original collectible enamel pins. SUBTERFUGE opens Thursday, January 26th with a reception from 5 to 7 PM and will remain up for view through Monday, February 20th. Work will be available to purchase both in the gallery as well as on Screaming Sky’s website.
