Post #2: “Luba Lukova”

LUBA LUKOVA exhibited at the Gold Coast Arts Gallery, April 2015.

Internationally renowned, New York based Luba Lukova is regarded as one of the most distinctive image makers working today. Transcending language, culture, and politics, her Graphic Guts collection features passionate visual reactions to many of the pressing issues of our time. In the art of Bulgarian-born Lukova, less is more. More effect, more message, more expression; all while doing it with less. The graphic elements are bold with few fine details but the intent is clear. Her messages reflect the human condition, fundamental fairness and justice. Lukova’s use of striking, metaphoric images gives the viewers art to not only appreciate visually but intellectually. Graphic Guts is also the name of her new book to be released later this year by Clay & Gold.

Lukova’s work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris; Centre de la Gravure, La Louvière, Belgium; the Library of Congress; and the World Bank. Her work is currently on view at MoMA, New York and Denver Art Museum. She was recently included as number one in the Huffington Post’s review “15 Women Artists Who Have Left Their Mark On Modern Design.”
