Have a peak into the illustrator’s imagination at the 4th LUSTR Festival!


LUSTR is a festival for contemporary original illustration and the largest illustration exhibition in the Czech Republic. LUSTR isn’t just pictures on walls – it’s diverse installations by 40 selected artists. The event will see each of them shape their little corner in their own way.


LUSTR is a celebration of illustration, a meeting point for professionals and hobbyists to inspire each other and present their work together to over 2000 visitors. The opening is a chance for the artists to meet and shake hands, the hands so often relegated to solitary drawing. The programme also includes creative workshops, lectures and other educational activities.


Long gone are the times when illustrations belonged only in books. Today, we encounter them everywhere – in the media, in online and offline communication, in product design, and it is this diversity in contemporary illustration that LUSTR wants to present. The only restriction we impose on the artists is that the work they show should be their own and unburdened by a commercial commission.



22 to 28 September 2017 in a new venue in the centre of Prague – Hybernská 4.


This will be the fourth year of the LUSTR Festival. It is organised by Czech Illustrators and the publishing house and book shop PageFive, which was awarded the Czech Grand Design Prize 2016 in the Shop of the Year category. This edition is organised in close cooperation with the Faculty of Arts, Charles University.
