Design Matters Today with Luba Lukova

Design by Luba Lukova

Joining me on todays broadcast of Design Matters is Luba Lukova.

Luba Lukova is a renowned artist and designer working in New York. Her distinctive art utilizes metaphors, juxtaposition of symbols and economy of line and text to succinctly capture humanity's elemental themes.

The Bulgarian born Lukova has won many awards including the Grand Prix Savignac at the International Poster Salon, Paris; the Golden Pencil Award at the One Club, New York; Honor Laureate at the International Poster Exhibition in Fort Collins, CO; and ICOGRADA Excellence Award at the International Poster Festival in Chaumont, France. She is widely regarded for her New York Times Op-Ed illustrations and has received commissions from the Wall Street Journal, Time magazine, Adobe Systems, Sony Music, Harvard University and The War Resisters League.

Visually engaging and powerful, Lukova’s work is exhibited around the world. Her solo exhibitions have been held at UNESCO, Paris, France; DDD Gallery, Osaka, Japan; La MaMa, New York. This year her work will be on display at Museo Tridentino di Scienze Naturali, Trento, Italy and in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Lukova’s 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. In 2007 Clay & Gold Editions will publish the first comprehensive book about her art.
