Živojin "Žika" Lukić (Belgrade, Serbia, 10 February 1889 - Belgrade, Kingdom of Yugoslavia, died) was a Serbian sculptor.
He studied art under the tutelage of professor Đorđe Jovanović (sculptor)at the School of Arts and Crafts in Belgrade, and then went on to study sculpture at the Academy of Architecture in Moscow from 1909 to 1913 with professor Nikolay Andreyev. Later, he was sent by King Peter I of Serbia to Italy to hone his craft from 1918 to 1922. He lived and worked in Cavtat from 1922 until 1924 when he returned to Belgrade, where he began exhibiting his works in 1908 with the Lada Art Association.
Žika Lukić brought modern concepts to the Serbian sculpture of the third decade of the last century, especially in the portraiture art which he was most inclined towards. Gently relying on neo-Cubist style patterns, he used the language of the simple forms he used to build his work. He used clean lines that clearly defined the plastic features in the portraits he did. His most famous works are in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade: "Portrait of Dr. Radinka Hađić" (1923), "Portrait of Mrs. Zloković", (1926), "The Little Bat" (1928).
