Two of the hardest working men, Leonard McGurr aka Futura and jeffstaple sit down for a tête-à-tête. Favorite Futura quote, "I haven't survived this long by being an asshole or irresponsible. So just my contribution and what I would perceive to be is the perception people have of me, maybe not my work because that's objective. But in the people that have gotten to know me as a person. They probably think I'm a decent person. And I like to think I'm a decent person. You know what I mean? So, so, if I've made a success of myself, it hasn't been because I sold out. It's just been because I'm ultimately talented."

RYAN HUMPHREY Early American May 8 – June 20, 2010
Opening Reception: Friday, May 7, 6-8pm
DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present Early American, RYAN HUMPHREY’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. HUMPHREY explores duality through an altered, customized version of an 18th century American interior. The installation hijacks the format of a formal and affluent interior, infusing it with cast-offs and objects more likely found in a rural garage than an antique shop. Class and taste are called into question and the hierarchy of materials associated with social stratification is discarded.
CoproGallery presents Luke Chueh's "Beginnings / Endings (And Other Worthless Epiphanies)" which bears all the stylistic stamps Chueh's fans have come to love. Employing minimal color schemes, simple animal characters, and a seemingly endless suite of ill-fated situations, Chueh balances cute with brute, perched on the fine line between comic and tragic.
Chueh studied graphic design at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obipso where he earned a BS in Art & Design (Graphic Design concentration). Employed by the Ernie Ball Company, he worked in-house as designer/illustrator creating award-winning designs, and was featured in the design annuals of Communication Arts and Print Magazine. As if this were not enough, Chueh also created, produced, wrote, designed, edited and published "E.X.P.", a 'zine dedicated to the "Intelligent Dance Music (IDM)" genre. In 2003, Chueh moved to Los Angeles to further pursue a career in design, only to join the ranks of the under-employed. He resorted to painting as a way to keep both his edge and his sanity. When the Los Angeles underground art show, Cannibal Flower, invited him to exhibit at their monthly events, Chueh began his ascent into the LA art scene. Chueh has since established himself as the arbiter of disarmingly benign menace. Ever the designer, Chueh also has a new toy coming out through Munky King.
