About my artwork
Cheung’s paintings capture the hallucinations between the virtual and actual realities of a globalised world oscillating between Utopia and Dystopia. Spray paint, oil, acrylic, pastels, stock listings and ink collide in his works to form epic techno-sublime vistas.
I'm pleased you liked the watercolours, they're a fairly recent development (the earlier ones were acrylic on canvas) and a medium I'm still getting to grips with - it's unforgiving stuff. Anyway, they seem to be improving gradually and have been, thankfully, well recieved.
I must say again, your auction piece is a real beauty - I'm only used to seeing your large complex works - do you have more like that? Is it part of a series? It looks as though it should be, somehow.
Ha! I should check out your website - I may well find the answer there.
