Dave Chung's (aka The Chung!!) work of cute and colourfully vibrant creatures is an observation of the awkwardness and humiliations we experience as we age and live as human beings. Due to his father's job, the Chung family was always moving around. Having grown up in fast paced brightly coloured cities such as those found in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and then spending the later years of his childhood in Upstate New York and the Midwest, Dave was always new to every town he moved to. And being the new kid to every town and city meant many awkward and humiliating experiences. Although the stories that embody his paintings are generally reflections of his own unique personal experiences, many people are able to relate and laugh along with them.
Dave has had his work shown in galleries world wide and is currently living in Los Angeles, California as an illustrator/Fine Artist.
