Special Feature: The Art of Luke Chueh
“Like a cuddly Trojan horse, Chueh’s work is pretty on the outside, but nice and macabre on the inside” Entertainment Weekly
Next month will see the publication of the eagerly awaited first book from critically acclaimed pop surrealist artist Luke Chueh. Chueh, an LA-based artist, stylistically balances cute with brute, walking the fine line between comedy and tragedy. Chueh’s work has been featured in galleries around the world.
The Art of Luke Chueh presents Chueh’s bold and unusual art – employing minimal color schemes, simple animal characters, and a seemingly endless list of ill-fated situations.
Chueh has enjoyed success in the Lowbrow and Pop Surrealist art movements, and has risen to the forefront of the art scene in LA., featuring at sold-out shows, including the popular Crazy 4 Cult at Gallery 1988, in and around Los Angeles for the past four years.
With a dedicated following, some of Chueh’s characters have been recreated as a line of toys. Chueh also designed the cover for Fall Out Boy’s album Folie a Deux.
