Gordon Cheung is of Hong Kong origin, born in London in 1975. He studied painting at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and the Royal College of Art, graduating in 2001.
Cheung’s multi-media art capture the hallucinations between the virtual and actual realities of a globalised world oscillating between Utopia and Dystopia. Spray paint, oil, acrylic, pastels, stock listings and ink collide in his works to form epic techno-sublime vistas. He won the Jerwood Contemporary Painters Prize in 2008, and was awarded the Arts Council of England Individual Arts Award in 2005. In 2014 Cheung took part in the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition and in 2015 he exhibited work inspired by the Dutch Golden Age at the Alan Cristea Gallery. Cheung currently lives and works in London.
Cheung's works are in international collections including the Hirshhorn Museum, Whitworth Museum, ASU Art Museum, The New Art Gallery Walsall, Knoxville Art Museum, Hiscox Collection, Progressive Arts Collection, UBS Collection and the Gottesman Collection.
