This month, our featured Student Artist is Junior Julia Lubarsky!
Julia has been doing photography and design since her freshman year of high school when she took a darkroom photography class and fell in love with it. Julia is an Art Editor for The Vanderbilt Review and has been on the team since her freshman year.
Julia gets her inspiration from all sorts of visual places, including Pinterest, Instagram, magazines, music, and art books. When we asked her which of her pieces she is most proud of, she identified the image to the right:
“This image is the piece I’m most proud of. Created while taking a class at the School of Visual Arts in NYC, I took this image and submitted it to my AP Studio Art portfolio. It was selected as one of 30 pieces out of 250,000 pieces for the AP Studio Art traveling exhibit. It was really cool to be nationally recognized for something I created, as I never really thought of myself as being able to achieve something like that. Beyond the recognition, I love the image because of how people react to it. It means something different to everyone and I really love that ambiguity.”
