Luke Chueh’s Bat-Bear Soon Available
Beware the Bat-Bear
Luke Chueh is an american artist well known for his depressive bears series. He got his start when the Los Angeles 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. Chueh’s work has been featured in galleries around the world, and some of his paintings have also been reinterpreted into vinyl toys.
This is the case with this absolutely awesome Bat-Bear statue, inspired by a 2008 painting, that will be on sale on Mighty Jaxx the 4th of June, limited to 200 exemplaries.
