Jeffrey Cheung: Ever Free

7920 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90046
Jan 25, 7 PM - 10 PM — ends Mar 07, 2020
New Image Art Gallery is pleased to present new paintings by Jeffrey Cheung in Ever Free, the artist's second solo exhibition with the gallery to date. Cheung’s fluid figurative works blend pop and graffiti, which is evident in his new body of airbrushed large scale paintings. The artist’s positive narratives are in response to the current state of repression of sexual and expressive freedom, racial inequality, the excesses of capitalism, environmental degradation, and other issues of deep personal concern to the artist. For all the art market success Cheung has enjoyed, he like Keith Haring also licensed mass-marketed items that permitted anyone who could afford a T-shirt or skateboard to own a token of his work, and he plowed a chunk of the profits into social causes. His style, above all, denies no one access.

Jeff Cheung is a Bay Area based, Chinese-American artist, who is the co-founder of Unity Press and Unity Skateboard Company.
