About

Alongside Joanne Tod and Kent Monkman, Attila Richard Lukacs (b. 1962) is one of Canada's most distinctive if not revolutionary Canadian figurative painters.

Lukacs established his name in the 1980's, after decamping to Berlin, and creating astonishing large scale paintings that depicted skinheads, and other masculine archetypes in graphic homoerotic situations.

The painter would return to North America in 1996. After a decade of creating provocative images Lucaks embarked on a series of paintings followed by a pair of etchings entitled Arbor that were semi-abstract depictions of looking at towering trees from below.

Despite Lukacs' reputation for his highly sexual and elaborate canvases Arbor has become his most iconic creation.
