Like a sledgehammer to your funny bone, The Chung!! uses his unique brand of off-beat humor to examine the inevitable misfortunes and disappointments that accompany all of our lives and finds a glimmering ray of light therein. His work reminds us to step back, stop taking ourselves so seriously, and use the moment to laugh at our failures, because after all, feeling sorry for ourselves never got anyone anywhere.
David Chung, affectionately known as The Chung!!, lives in Los Angeles yet works out of some dark, strange corner of the human imagination that the rest of us generally knows to stay away from. His artwork, filled with humor and awkwardness, is a sort of catharsis for the moments of humiliation which inevitably stain all of our lives.
The Chung!! has shown in galleries all over Los Angeles, New York, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and parts of Europe. He currently works full time during the day as a Background Designer for Nickelodeon and a fine artist by night.

Roger Gastman, co-author of The History of American Graffiti, has just curated the two-person exhibition Uphill Both Ways, featuring art by graffiti artists Pose and Revok. In addition to the exhibition at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery, Chicago-based Pose and Detroit-based Revok are also collaborating on a large-scale mural on Houston and Bowery streets in New York City.
Uphill Both Ways is inspired by the work of late graffiti artist NEKST. The exhibition recounts the challenges Pose and Revok have dealt with in the legal sector and a general theme of human struggle that seems to run through the body of work by each artist. Both Pose and Revok are members of world-renowned graffiti crew Mad Society Kings (MSK), as well as West Coast arts collective The Seventh Letter. While there are many similarities apparent between the two artists, Pose and Revok are stylistically and technically very different in many ways. Pose’s work generally alludes to pop and comic art, skateboarding, advertising, graphic arts, collage, sign painting, and graffiti. Pose strives to paint the human condition as he sees it. Revok’s art creates abstract geometric patterns with vibrant colors, and does so through the use of found materials such as pieces from abandoned homes, schools, businesses, and churches in order to revive and reinterpret the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of the people from whom these found-bits have been sampled.
Uphill Both Ways opens on Saturday June 29th at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery, with a reception to be held from 7-9pm. The show will be open for viewing from June 29th-July 27th 2013.

When not teaching the kiddies at school about the wonders of Geography and Social Sciences,my current hobby is to colour various comic pictures as well as do some freelance graphic design projects. These galleries show off the more recent items that I have done. In this I’m the guy that adds all the pretty colours to the B&W image comic page or image that someone else has drawn.
