"Psychedelic substances definitely had a major role in the
development of my popular 'bear' character. Back when I was in college,
my best friend and I had an experience that inspired us to run around my
house declaring we were Care Bears. I was christened 'Luke Bear,' and
my friend, 'Jaime Bear.' Nicknames that have stuck till this day. Fast
forward to when I moved to Los Angeles. I wanted to create an character
that could readily represent me. Even after more than a decade, a bear
was the obvious choice." - 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 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.
