Margarita Korol is an urban pop artist and designer in New York City producing public and commissioned artwork, musician promotion, print and web design services. Her work is characterized by pop art and culture elements.
Born the week of Chernobyl in Ukraine to refuseniks, Korol’s focus on empowering individuals in disadvantaged struggles against their political systems is an ongoing theme in her work.
Her most recent exhibit featured a series of propaganda posters (printed by Bluecanvas) on the Coney Island/ Brighton Beach Boardwalk and in the New York Aquarium for the group show ArtOnBrighton in October 2011. Previously, Propaglasnost: The Transparency Projects series was on view at NYC's KGB Bar May and June 2011. Meanwhile, her Berlin Wall installation Die Mauer is housed at Chicago's DANK-Haus German Cultural Center.

An idea worth spreading
I do not believe "people are stupid" as one can hear lamented publically. Rather, it's probably a laziness that takes over and creates an inertia that is hard for good ideas to get through. A little conscious proactivity goes a long way!
I'm passionate about
Urban Pop Artist advocating for citizens in political systems more loyal to the system itself than to the people. Use critical thought and political stimulus to fight corruption and mediocrity
Talk to me about
