This piece of original artwork comes ready to hang.
Inner State Gallery is proud to announce Damaged Goods an expansive
exhibition by prolific new contemporary multi-media artist Luke Chueh.
This entirely new body of work will feature a gallery wide takeover,
opening to the public on Friday, April 22nd in Detroit’s Historic
Eastern Market. After working with Inner State Gallery’s fine art
publisher 1xRUN since their inception in 2011, Chueh has watched the
company become one of the contemporary art world’s most prolific, with
nearly 1500 releases and counting.
“For many years, I've had the pleasure of working with 1xRUN, and I've
seen them grow and diversify. For this show, I want to create an
exhibition that I could only pull off with Inner State & 1xRUN. In
order to do that I took full advantage of the tools and technology that
they have in their on site studio. From silkscreen reproduction, to
hand-embellished prints, to laser cut editions, this show will truly
push the boundary of the kind of artwork I've created and explore the
merging of art and commerce.” - Luke Chueh
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Born in Philadelphia, but raised in Fresno, Luke Chueh
(pronounced CHU) studied graphic design at California Polytechnic State
University, San Luis Obipso where he earned a BS in Art & Design.
He was then employed by the Ernie Ball Company, working in-house as
designer/illustrator where he created several award winning designs and
was featured in the design annuals of Communication Arts and Print
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. From there, he got his start showing
in the Los Angeles underground art scene, specifically in the Cannibal
Flower art shows. 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
endless list of ill-fated situations, Chueh stylistically balances cute
with brute, walking the fine line between comedy and tragedy.
