Ashley Lukashevsky is an illustrator and visual artist from Honolulu, Hawaii. Her work focuses on issues related to immigrant rights, racial justice, LGBTQIA+ equality, and gender equity. Through her art, Ashley seeks to call attention to oppressive power structures — and the connective tissue that exists between them — with the aim of dismantling them. She has communed and collaborated with various organizations including the ACLU, Girls Who Code, Planned Parenthood, the California Endowment, and Al Otro Lado.
With a multidisciplinary approach and an intersectional lens, her work ranges from social media art campaigns to multi-dimensional art installations. In the past year, she has worked on large scale installations, notably at UC Berkeley’s Basic Needs Center and WeRise LA, an exhibition and billboard campaign to break down stigma surrounding mental health.
Ashley believes that illustration and art can be used as tools to strengthen social movements, and that collectively, we hold the power to speak, paint, and draw into existence the kind of world we want to live in.
