Contemporary Whitney Houston / Shirley Chisholm Decorative Porcelain Urn


Whitney Houston / Shirley Chisholm Urn is made by Roberto Lugo out of porcelain, china paint and gold luster. Best known for expertly thrown ceramic vessels that are illustrated with activists, political figures, and hip-hop legends, Lugo aims to reach diverse audiences through his work. And he wears many hats, including potter, social activist, spoken-word poet, and educator the last of which sees him working with Community groups, teaching them, for example, to create mosaic murals that honor gun violence victims. His work is an extension of his experiences growing up in Philadelphia, from battle-rapping during lunch to doodling in composition books and making a name for himself in the graffiti scene. “Today my graffiti is defacing social inequality,” Lugo says. “My experiences as an indigent minority inform my version of Puerto Rican American history. I bring art to those that do not believe they need to see it and engage in deeper ways of knowing, learning, and thinking”.
