Born in Philadelphia, but raised in Fresno, Luke Chueh (pronounced CHU) studied graphic design at California Polytechnic State University, where he earned a BS in Art & Design.

 

In 2003, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in design. However, a lack of employment opportunities left him resorting to painting as a way to keep busy. He got his start when the Los Angeles underground art show, Cannibal Flower, invited him to show at their monthly events. Soon afterwards he created the artwork for Fall Out Boy’s “Folie à Deux” album cover gaining him national attention. Since then Chueh has quickly worked his way up the ranks of the LA art scene, establishing himself as an artist not to be ignored.

 

This humorous and insightful series of paintings depict cartoon inspired characters wrestling with modern life situations. Chueh stylistically balances cute with brute, walking the fine line between comedy and tragedy. Chueh is notorious for his sell out shows and has been featured in museums and galleries around the world, and some of his paintings have also been reinterpreted into vinyl toys.
