Emmy Lu’s ‘Late date’

Internationally Acclaimed Artist stages a major Holiday Season Art Exhibit at the Sentinel

The Sentinel is once again showcasing Emmy Lu’s colorful and mind challenging artistic extravaganza, in conjunction with the Holiday Season Celebrations.

Emmy’s work was premier featured artist during the “Taste of Soul” festival. His exclusive pieces were big attraction to thousands who flocked to the spectacular yearly event.

Having established himself as a cultural icon, Emmy enjoys a diverse art collecting audience including celebrities, prominent politicians, business executives and other art loving individuals.

This highly prolific artistic magnet’s celebration of Jazz through stylistic representation remains a constant. His musical pieces adorn many Corporate offices especially in the Music world.

Emmy’s relentless search for greater inspiration is undoubtedly revealed in the humongous collection of social themes he has produced in years. as seen in “Women of Color”, “Family”, “Elegante”, and ‘Late Date”, In the latter, Emmy visually captures a scene of a young girl in the hood waiting for a dream lover boy whose lack of time consciousness is on the verge of plunging her high expectations into a romantic malaise. The viewer’s assumption that, this pretty girl is about damp the Rose flower if the date is abortive, is not far fetched from Emmy’s inner massage.

This goes to enforce the magical visual power this artist exudes in our imaginative conscience. Every piece Emmy produces has the ethereal aspect of the hidden connotative wizardry. It is only through inquisitive eye scrutiny that decoded messages can be deciphered.

“….I want my audience to view my work not merely as a format of visual entertainment but as vehicle propelled towards cultural awareness social advancement and mental enrichment. Emmy continued …”if my art can bring to bear the harmonious understanding through the sisterhood and brotherhood of the human race that, uplifting vulnerable children from systematic imposition of poverty and neglect is not Utopian, my purpose is well served. if my work can close people’s eyes to see a better tomorrow, my creativity is not rendered in vain”

Such is the mind of an artist unselfishly advancing his artistic mission to a greater horizon for many.

Emmy’s work has been donated to benefit various international Charitable causes. He is also acknowledge by the Cities of Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Atlanta for his ardent philanthropic propensity.
