**RECAP** Luke Chueh's “Contemptorary Art” @ Corey Helford 2/12/2011

Last night was the opening of Luke Chueh's second solo show at Corey Helford Gallery, and “Contemptorary Art” lived up to it's name, and the hype surrounding Lukes latest body of work. Upon entering the gallery space all were greeted with a print at the door, which later on in the night Luke would go around and happily sign. the room was full of bright vivid colors from every corner as Luke featured sixteen paintings based on his observations, experiences and studies of the art world. In the middle of the room was a very large wall barricade that had GIANT 6' outlined paintings of Luke's infamous bear figure (watch the video below to see Luke sketch a face on it) where throughout the night he invited all who attended to sketch on a 8.5"x11" sheet of paper with the same outline of the bear on it which then filled up that barricaded wall with everyone's interpretation of his figure... it was really great, and ton s of fun to see all the styles and levels of art.

Also introduced to the crowd that night was a GIANT 5' tall 1000% Possessed figure with devil... and wow did it look great... even though it was a prototype for an upcoming release of a super limited edition 15 piece fiberglass series which is going to drop through Munky King later on this year! Luke was surrounded by his family and tons of friends who came out to show their support. Notables such as Ritzy Periwinkle, Joe Ledbetter, Angry Woebots, and Sket-One were on hand to appreciate the work that Luke created. All in all the night was a huge success, and a ton of fun! “Contemptorary Art” will be on display until March 12, 2011 which I highly recommend taking a trip out to see all these works in person!
