Roberto Lugo

About

Roberto Lugo is an American artist, ceramicist, social activist, spoken word poet, and educator. Lugo uses porcelain as his medium of choice, illuminating its aristocratic surface with imagery of poverty, inequality, and social and racial injustice. Lugo’s works are multicultural mash-ups, traditional European and Asian porcelain forms and techniques reimagined with a 21st-century street sensibility. Lugo was named 2018 Ceramic Artist of the Year by the Ceramic Arts Network. His work is part of the permanent collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The High Museum of Art, the Columbus Museum of Art, The Chipstone Foundation, and more.
