About Luke

Born in Philadelphia, but raised in Fresno, Luke Chueh’s (pronounced CHU) formal art education began and ended at Califronia Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obipso where he earned a BS in Art & Design (Graphic Design concentration). Before graduating, he was employed by the Ernie Ball Company, working in-house as designer/illustrator. While there Chueh was resposible for several award winning designs and was featured in the design annuals of Communication Arts and Print Magazine. At the same time, he also created, produced, wrote, designed, edited and published “E.X.P.”, a ‘zine dedicated to the “Intelligent Dance Music (IDM)” genre.

In 2003, Chueh moved to Los Angeles to further pursue a career in design. However, a lack of employment opportunities left him resorting to painting as a way to keep busy (a hobby he picked up while attending Cal Poly). He got his start when Los Angeles’ premiere underground art show, Cannibal Flower, invited him to show at their monthly events. 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. Employing minimal color schemes, simple animal characters, and a seemingly endless list of ill-fated situations, Chueh stylistically balances cute with brute, walking the fine line between comedy and tragedy.

"Comical, yet dark. I love it. I agree with taylor though; these have to have a story behind them."

"these must have stories behind them"

"Though they look like sighs these works are cuddly and comfortable."

"Luke Cheuh's work is brilliantly minimalistic, funny, and dark. I have his site bookmarked and check in from time to time. The emotional and style-vs.-content ping-pong is unsettlingly, but I always come back for more..."
