Vincent #114 Tommy Cheng Painting
19 x 9 in (48 x 23 cm)
Portrait of Vincent Van Gogh, painted in a more textured and thicker brush style than usual for Tommy Cheng, perhaps a strategy adopted in order to evoke Van Gogh's own work.
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.
