Internationally recognized, New York based Luba Lukova is regarded as one of the most distinctive image-makers working today. Whether by using an economy of line, color and text to pinpoint essential themes of the human condition or to succinctly depict social commentary, her work is undeniably powerful and thought provoking.
Lukova’s work has been exhibited widely in the U.S. and around the world. Solo exhibitions include UNESCO, Paris, DDD Gallery, Osaka, La MaMa Gallery, New York, and the Art Institute of Boston. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Denver Museum of Art; Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris; Centre de la Gravure, La Louvière, Belgium; the Library of Congress; and the World Bank.
Her many awards include Grand Prix Savignac at the International Poster Salon, Paris, France; the Golden Pencil Award at the One Club, New York; ICOGRADA Excellence Award at the Poster Festival in Chaumont, France; and Honor Laureate at the International Poster Exhibition in Fort Collins, CO. Lukova is the author of the critically acclaimed Social Justice poster portfolio containing visual reactions to many of the pressing issues of our time. Her new book, Graphic Guts (Clay & Gold), featuring her social commentary art will be published later this year.
