Jan Luyken (April 16 1649, Amsterdammarker - April 5 1712, Amsterdam) was a Dutchmarker poet, illustrator and engraver.

His name is also shown as Johannes Luiken.

At his twenty-sixth, he had a religious experience that inspired him to write moralistic poetry.

He illustrated the 1685 edition of the Martyrs Mirror with 104 copper etchings. Thirty of these plates survive and are part of The Mirror of the Martyrs exhibit.

He also published Het Menselyk Bedryf in 1694, which contains numerous engravings, by Luiken and his son Caspar (Caspaares), of 17th century trades.
