Mal Luber, one of Connecticut's most outstanding artists, has exhibited his drawings and paintings in many leading museums and galleries throughout the country. His photo-realist drawings have received critical acclaim wherever they have been exhibited, and are included in several prestigious museum and private collections.
For as long as he has been an artist, the human form has been his primary focus. Over the past three decades he has been primarily known for his large photo-realist drawings of nudes, commissioned portraits and "street people", which the critics have called "remarkable", and have referred to him as "an artist with a camera's eye".
In the last few years Mal has turned his artistic attention to the cowboys of the American West, as well as equine art, wildlife art, cowboy art, carousel art, and even pet portaiture. During his trips to the West he photographs cowboys, horses, and other images that he converts into drawings and acrylic paintings of intense color and power.
It is his wildlife art pieces, in both graphite and color pencil, and acrylic paint, which are presently receiving most of the critical attention. Although his wildlife art subject matter is quite diverse -from elephants to iguanas, Mal is focusing on a series which he calls "Portraits on the Wild Side". These are very close up images of various wild animals, seen as portraits, rather than as animals in their natural environment. In this way, he distinghishes himself from other wildlife artsists.
Whether it's the human form, horses, pets or wildlife, Mal Luber is an artist in command of his mediums who pocesses a keen awareness of how to create a powerful image.
