Deedee Cheriel

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Deedee’s smart, neo-folk style reflects the skateboarding and indie music scene she grew up in. Influenced by feminist punk iconography and East India Temple imagery, her style has a clear and distinct voice. Birds on bikes and growling bears are the anthropomorphic characters that find comedic remedy to their lighthearted dramas in her work. Animals and geometric patterns, bright colours, and loose lines create vibrant and fantastic scenes of absurdity. The images from this Kuvva set are paintings that were exhibited at the Battalion show, 'Just Passing Through', in 2012.
