This piece is part of 323East's upcoming exhibition Lyric 2012 Curated by Glenn Barr
. Each of the 30+ artists were asked to follow one simple rule, their artwork must fit within a 12 x 12 inch square. Paying homage to the timeless beauty that can fit onto the cover space of a vinyl record, we are more than excited to welcome back Luke Chueh for his second RUN with "Head Like A Hole" inspired by the Nine Inch Nails song of the same name.
"What makes this piece unique is that it is directly inspired by a specific musical lyric, and I've never created a painting with this kind of source as the foundation of the idea. The inspiration for this piece comes from It was inspired by the lyrics for the song "Head Like A Hole" by Nine Inch Nails." - Luke Chueh
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 Magazine.
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.
Chueh's work has been featured in galleries around the world, and some of his paintings have also been reinterpreted into vinyl toys.
