Luba Lukova wanted to have a pur­pose to her paint­ings.

“[Ac­tivism] is the pur­pose of art, of any genre of art, in a way. Not just to en­ter­tain, but to say some­thing mean­ing­ful about our time and we know that any­thing is pos­si­ble in art,” Lukova said.

This sum­mer, her so­cial jus­tice poster port­fo­lio is on dis­play at the Mu­seum of De­sign At­lanta.

“We think about de­sign as a tool for mak­ing a dif­fer­ence, and so much of her work is about is­sues that we’re all talk­ing about right now. It’s re­ally timely,” said Laura Flusche, MODA ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor. For an ex­panded ver­sion of this story, visit www.the­gavoice.com.

Bul­gar­ian-born artist Luba Lukova is known in­ter­na­tion­ally for her graphic poster de­pict­ing is­sues of so­cial jus­tice and hu­man rights, such as this one cre­ated for New York Pride in 2016. (Cour­tesy photo)
