A painted recreation of a yearbook page, two rows of school photos shown. Perhaps taken from Tommy Cheng's own yearbook—a Thomas Cheng Jr. is conspicuosly pictured.

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.
