collages by LULU {de Kwiatowski}

08 August 2011


How are you?
Need a little boost?

Extra love, caffeine, and Skittles have been
magically injected into this post
and as always, your lovely today contains
ZERO CALORIES...

Let's get busy with
happy happy color
and perhaps a few nudes
thrown in for good measure, yes?

Can you tell I love picture books yet?
So anxious was I the other day
to devour my copy of
(Ammo Books),
upon removing it
from the lovely
protective white box,
I nearly lacerated a finger
on the cardboard.

Lulu in Lonny Magazine - Oct 2010

Painful but bloody well worth it!

Lulu de Kwiatowski
is an acclaimed textile designer,
but it's her vogue psychedelic
autobiographical collages
that thrill me with wonder and
make my heart go...sweeeeeet mama.


Inspired by her travels and childhood,
the artist's mixed media in the book
combine painting, writing, drawing,
and photography.
Much of her work is inspired by...
ahhhhhhh...BEACHES.



Lulu DK is Lulu's company
where linens
like these are designed
for Matouk.


And also china like this.


reveals that all of the
work for Lulu was created
on the floor of her
former NY apartment.


Since I am passionate
about creating collages myself
and sometimes sprawl out on a
giant dropcloth,
the above work in progress shot
rocked my sox.

For me, her work is music.
Can you feel the notes of joy and freedom leaping off the page?


I am truly cuckoo,
Lulu, for this beachy pattern
in juicy-licious tones.

Lulu


crazy for the tones in this one too!

Collages from Lulu's book were recently
exhibited and made into prints for sale.

Into the Womb

The beautiful piece above was created
for her mother at a difficult time.
It is perhaps my favorite as I sense
it is so full of hope and comfort.


So original.
So free.
So personal.

Talk to me, beautiful peeps in blogland.

Could Lulu's designs be
any more funtastic??????

  8. Fabulous collages (although yours are still my favourite ;)) - that plate, though, oh my god I must own that.

    I love the vibe in all of these, so much life in every piece. Thanks for the intro, hunnypot!
