Attila Richard Lukacs

Attila Richard Lukacs was born in 1962 in Edmonton, Alberta. He completed his artistic training at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design. The artist was one of the young firebrands included in the Vancouver Art Gallery’s dynamic “Young Romantics” exhibition of 1985 and he has enjoyed a commercially and critically successful career ever since. Lukacs is best known internationally for his large scale canvasses dealing with homoerotic themes.

His work is found in many major public collections and he has been a member of the Royal Canadian Academy since 1997.
