Dr. Lakra created a series of drawings for the visual identity of Liverpool Biennial 2021.

Lakra is well known for his drawing practice, inspired by the history of tattooing – a practice across the globe since Neolithic times re-introduced to the Western modern world after an increase in popularity amongst British and American sailors in 1700s. His images transform and translate the conceptual ideas and entry points of the Biennial, combining body parts and Liverpudlian landscapes.

Commissioned by Liverpool Biennial. This commission is supported by the British Council, Patronato de Arte Contemporáneo, A.C., and Embassy of Mexico in the United Kingdom.
