In Kat Stoeffel’s recent article for ‘The Cut” we discover the Barbara Kruger, one of today’s most creative and talented opinion artists. She’s a mix of graphic design, editorial illustration and art, all mixed in with a little political savvy and a little grit mixed in.
Take a look and be as impressed as I was. Kat Stoeffel writes :
Kruger is best known for text and image pieces that prompt you to assess your relationship to consumerism — “I shop therefore I am” and “You want it. You buy it. You forget it.” — although her nearly 50-year CV covers many isms across many media. Her background is in magazine design, and perhaps as a result, her work is eye-catching, easily transmitted, and frequently ripped off. It’s a phenomenon that both amuses and inspires her.
