Have a peak into the illustrators’ imagination at the 4th edition of LUSTR Festival!


LUSTR is a festival of contemporary original illustration and the largest illustration exhibition in the Czech Republic - a meeting point for professionals as well as amateurs to inspire each other and present their work together to over 2000 visitors.


LUSTR isn’t just pictures on the walls – it is diverse installations by 40 selected artists, as well as workshops, talks/lectures, educational activities, music and drinks. The festival is a unique chance for the artists to meet each other, and share their experiences and skills in a fun environment.


Long gone are the times when illustrations belonged only in books. Today, we see them everywhere – mass media, online and offline marketing communication, product design, and it is this diversity in contemporary illustration that LUSTR wants to celebrate. The only restriction we impose on the artists is that the work they present at the festival is their own work and is not burdened by commercial commissions.




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


This year already sees the fourth edition of the LUSTR Festival. It is organized by Czech illustrators and PageFive publishing house and book shop. Page Five was awarded the Czech Grand Design Prize 2016 in the Shop of the Year category. This edition is also supported by the Faculty of Arts, Charles University.
