art by luke chueh

The Soundtrack

Luke Chueh's pieces are really cute in an eerily disturbing way - and that's exactly why they're so great. Featuring sad and/or tortured characters, Chueh's work stems from the intolerance he suffered as child growing up as a Chinese-American.

Luke was born in Philadelphia, but raised in Fresno. In 2003, Chueh moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in design. 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. Collected here are fifteen of my favorite paintings from his portfolio.
