Curtis Kulig

Artist, photographer, and illustrator Curtis Kulig lives and works in New York City where his signature "Love Me" message has quickly become an icon. Confronting the most private request through the most public of platforms, Kulig's manifesto-like campaign offers an open-ended proclamation for the viewer to decipher it as demand, question, or plea. Inviting and enticing the public, though ultimately, presenting an experience for the individual. Since 2005, "Love Me" has deftly jumped from iconic billboards and street corners to bronze sculpture, scintillating neons, large-scale canvas and ubiquitous prints; in cities ranging from New York to London, Istanbul to Los Angeles, Tokyo to Berlin. He has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, among others and most recently was a featured artist for Chanel's Artist Award for the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. Kulig continues to bring his aesthetic imprint into the Contemporary Art sphere by pushing his staple scripture past the city-oriented domain and into visually rapt, contextually absolute forms.
