New York Gallery Hollis Taggart presents the exhibition "Sven Lukin: Objects in Space"dedicated to the creativity of the 60s, emphasizing the constant interest and attractiveness of the artist’s post-war creativity.
Inspired by creativity and vision of the famous architect Louis Kahn, Lukin's mysterious works are three-dimensional shapes, geometric fields of color and illusionist lines and perspectives.
Sven Lukin was born in Riga, Latvia, in 1934, and emigrated to the United States in 1949. In 1953, he entered the University of Pennsylvania School of Architecture. In 1958, Lukin moved to New York to engage in creative work, and in 1961 he presented a solo exhibition in the famous Betty Parsons Gallery, which allowed him to enter the inner art circles of the city.
Lukin's brilliant imagination, constant experimentation and risk appetite made him a rising star of art in the 1960s and 1970s.
