Arthur Big Boy Crudup #25 Tommy Cheng Painting

U.S.A, c. 1995
24 x 16 in (61 x 41 cm)
ID #TC-Z-25

Portrait of blues musician Arthur William "Big Boy" Crudup, about to play his guitar and with a curious expression on his face—it's almost impatient, as if waiting for the audience to settle down before he starts singing.

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.

Artist: Tommy Cheng

Material: Paint on plywood
