Not Just For Zombies: Meet Lora Zombie

Lora Zombie is described as a "grunge artist". 

She is a self-taught painter and is now a top seller on the urban art scene, continually gaining attention from the art world.   With a unique commentary on pop culture and a keen eye for beauty, her raw, trademark style is already unmistakable. 

Her work is quirky, sometimes sensual, off the cuff, playfully cutting edge, and flirtatiously 'dark'.  

It's not unusual to see an image of a sweet little girl partnered with a fierce non-child friendly animal an oversized "Mr. Rat".  There's certainly a shock value to most of Lora's work.  And, sure, maybe it's not for everyone.  I get it.  Not all of my playground mom friends will drool over Lora Zombie. 

But, clearly, there is a market for such raw and provocative artwork.    Lora's facebook page has over 62,000 likes.  Her instagram has over 12,000 followers.  The girl's got talent.

And when Eyes on Walls contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in featuring Lora on Vivid Hue Home, I jumped at the opportunity.  I'd spotted her work a few years ago at a store in Little Five Points, Atlanta and loved it. 

With Halloween just around the corner, this is the perfect opportunity to consider decorating with an elegantly eerie twist.  I'd consider adding a piece to an art gallery wall permanently.  (And boy do I have an offer for you...wait til the end). 

Here are some of my favorite works by Lora:

Mr Rat

Wonder Wash
Red Riding Hood
What's Up

Mr. Benson
Sailor Girl

She's so talented! I really like her 'Red Robin Hood' and 'Sailor Girl' paintings!

I always like things with a fresh, fun twist and her work clearly shows that! Thanks for the introduction, Heather!
