Adam Zeiner #169 Tommy Cheng Painting

U.S.A, c. 1995
12 x 9 in (30 x 23 cm)
ID #TC-Z-169

Playful portrait of a boy making a silly, cross-eyed face. Tommy Cheng gives context for the painting on the back: "This boy is Adam Zeiner my cousin's son at Thanksgiving making a good picture face."

Tommy Cheng is a contemporary outsider and folk artist who lives and paints in Washington Heights. His unique style of portraiture has attracted gallery shows in New York, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Atlanta, and Paris. Cheng's portraits are inspired by pop culture and celebrities. With its wide open eyes, deceivingly expressive faces, and modernly flat construction a Cheng portrait is instantly identifiable.
