LULU is a sumptuous first monograph on artist Lulu de Kwiatkowski's colorful, dreamlike, and autobiographical
handmade collages. Lulu is an acclaimed designer that is well known for her own textile line LULU DK. What is less known however, is that Lulu is also a prolific fine artist with an extensive body of work that has never before been published. Lulu's artwork draws inspiration from her unique, albeit rarefied and surreal, growing up experiences, as well as from her travels all over the world. Lulu's original multi-media collages combine painting, drawing, photography, and writing.
With a background in painting, textile design, and the decorative arts, Lulu's work blends depictions of flora and fauna, with geometric studies of pattern and color. Memories often appear in the form of hand written text, as well as in portraits of herself and her family members, removed from their original context and integrated into these dreamlike and fictional landscapes. Whimsical, yet complex, Lulu's work conveys a distinctly feminine and decorative sensibility that resonates as both contemporary and timeless.
