Last night at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, Luke Chueh (interviewed) unveiled his newest body of work where he delves into the world of contemporary art.  Taking his iconic imagery and successfully remixing it with some familiar and selected aspects of the genre, the LA-based artist’s new paintings celebrate and at the same time make fun of the high-brow art world as evidenced by the title of the show.  It certainly was a new direction for Luke and forced attendees to think a little about the so-called lowbrow art movement and it’s complex comparisons and relationships to contemporary art.

Other highlights of opening included free prints, a huge Possessed sculpture that will go into limited production soon, and crowd participation in drawing on silhouettes of Luke’s iconic sad bear.
