"Luba Lukova’s images have punch, and they are laced with such feeling that they often merit a second look."–Cate McQuaid, The Boston Globe

"Stunning… Instead of statistics, instead of discussions, Lukova’s in-our-face, one-on-one work of art asks us to feel, really feel…"–Carol Knowles, Memphis Flyer

"Creating some of the most iconic posters of the last decade, Luba Lukova is one of the most important visual artists of our generation. This is not up for debate. History will remember her work."–John Foster, Rockpaperink

"Intense and unrelenting, pointing out the injustices and foibles of society in an cheerful advertising aesthetic that surprises the viewer with its poignancy."–William Corwin, Saatchi Online TV & Magazine

Internationally recognized, New York based Luba Lukova is regarded as one of the most distinctive image-makers working today. Her original art uses metaphors, the juxtaposition of symbols and very few lines and text to best capture the essence of basic humanity. Lukova's solo exhibitions have been held at UNESCO, Paris; DDD Gallery, Osaka, Japan; and The Art Institute of Boston. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Library of Congress, Washington, DC; Bibliotheque Nationale de France; and the World Bank. Her many awards include Grand Prix Savignac at the Inrenational Poster Salon in Paris and Golden Pencil Award at the One Club in New York. She is the author of the critically acclaimed Social Justice poster portfolio, containing visual reactions to many of the pressing issues of our time. The portfolio has been exhibited around the world and in the U.S. including the prestigious art show at the Inauguration of President Obama and, most recently, at the Occupy protests in New York and Washington, DC. Lukova’s new book, Graphic Guts (Clay & Gold), featuring her social commentary art will be published later this year.
