jeffrey cheung

Né à Castro Valley en Californie en 1989. Vit et travaille à Oakland, Californie.

Jeffrey Cheung évolue dans le monde du skate tout autant que dans le monde de l’art. Co-fondateur de Unity Skateboarding, il a réussi à allier ces deux disciplines en y ajoutant un propos militant pour la cause LGBTQ. Egalement co-fondateur de Unity Press, c’est par la diffusion de ses dessins sur des planches de skateboard ou sur du papier imprimé qu’il donne à voir le corps humain d’une nouvelle manière, se débarrassant des normes et des codes hétéronormés. Les figures androgynes de Jeffrey Cheung se meuvent et s'enlacent dans un jeu de corps à corps vif et amusant. Ses personnages sont difficilement étiquetables. Par la simplicité de ses lignes, Jeffrey Cheung célèbre la diversité des corps, des genres et de la sexualité.

Diplômé en art de l’université de UC Santa Cruz, Jeffrey Cheung a récemment participé à l’exposition “Punch” organisé par l’artiste Nina Chanel Abney à la Jeffrey Deitch Gallery de Los Angeles. Il expose régulièrement entre Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland et Amsterdam.

Jeffrey Cheung is present in the world of skateboarding as much as in the world of art. Co-founder of Unity Skateboarding, he has managed to combine these two disciplines, along with militant LGBTQ advocacy. Also co-founder of Unity Press, by the diffusion of his drawings on skateboards and printed paper, he depicts the human body in a new way, rejecting heteronormative norms and codes. Jeffrey Cheung's androgynous figures move and embrace each other in a lively and playful hand-to-hand dance.. His characters are difficult to label. By the simplicity of his lines, Jeffrey Cheung celebrates the diversity of bodies, genders and sexualities.

An art major from UC Santa Cruz, Jeffrey Cheung recently participated in the "Punch" exhibition organized by artist Nina Chanel Abney at the Jeffrey Deitch Gallery in Los Angeles. He exhibits regularly between Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland and Amsterdam.
