Junge Spartaner fordern Knaben zum Kampf heraus (1988) detail
Attila Richard Lukacs (b. 1962)
In The Young Spartans Challenge the Boys to Fight, Canadian born artist Lukacs continues his fetishistic and provocative depictions of skinheads. The inclusion of the masonic square and compasses is noteworthy. In an interview published in The Advocate, Lukacs is quoted as saying, "I'm a homosexual, but I don't consider myself a homosexual artist."
