The Blind leading The Blind – by YOLA 2017-09-20

The Blind leading The Blind – by YOLA

Polish born street artist Yola (Jola Kudela) was recently invited to take part in this year’s Art Festival CONTEXTS2017 in Sokolowsko Laboratorium Sztuki, Poland. Her project, “The Blind leading The Blind”, consisted of a 70m2 paste up and a video “I choose not to”.  The project is a social and political commentary. It speaks about the lack of political awareness, and our indifference and passivity to what is going on in today’s society.

See the pictures Yola sent us of the work below!

About the artist:

The Streets are her gallery and local communities are her audience. Her visuals are based on icons of classical paintings as she recreates them with contemporary models. Working in public spaces forces her to be socially engaged. She feels that today artists shouldn’t produce decorative, meaningless visuals that serve only as publicity stunts. Yola works worka in the streets and her art tries to reflect what’s going on in those streets and in the society. She tries to do it with a dose of humour, even when she speaks about serious issues, like racism, ageism, or homophobia.
