Emmy Pai #47 Tommy Cheng Painting

U.S.A, c. 1994
18 x 12 in (46 x 30 cm)
ID #TC-Z-47

A portrait of a women whom Tommy Cheng identifies on the back as Emmy Pai. Tommy Cheng's use of colors in this painting is unique from the rest of his collection: typically he paints in distinct and separate swashes of color, but here he experiments with mixing colors, creating a purple highlight effect on the woman's otherwise black hair.

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.
