Being a self-taught artist is no rare thing nowadays, especially if you suck. Enter Lora Zombie, a self-taught Russian grunge art phenomenon with a stylistic approach to make professionally trained illustrators green with envy. Despite being a foreigner, Zombie takes a firm grasp on American pop culture. Then, she strangles it. Her work is dark.

Having gained significant art cred in the Motherland, Lora Zombie is making moves to the Western Hemisphere with a one-night-only, November 8th show at the Eyes On Walls gallery in SoHo. Not a bad place to be if you are looking to have your childhood illusions shattered with a pop of color.
