Natalya Lobanova diary art

Despite my having been very interested in poetry for a lot of my life, I’ve resisted the urge to incorporate text into my art because I sometimes feel it’s cheap way to force and narrow the meaning of a visual work. Lately though, I’ve been inspired by some artists working with text such as Natalya Lobanova, whose work is an intersection between poetry, comics, and diary art.

The big reveal of these works will take place on December 10 at an immersive event at Sydney's aMBUSH Gallery. If you want to come along, let us know why here.
