Photography by Rui Matsunaga

Gordon Cheung’s hallucinogenic art explores contemporary utopias and dystopias in a fast-paced, technologically-evolving globalised world. He is best known for his epic landscapes, which use an array of media including stock page listings, spray paint and recently, inkjet and woodblock printing.

Cheung was born in London in 1975 to parents who had emigrated from Hong Kong. He studied at Central Saint Martins and then the Royal College of Art, where he graduated in 2001.

He has exhibited extensively and in 2005, his work was exhibited in the British Art Show 6. He was a finalist in the John Moores Painting Prize, 2006 and in 2007, he was commissioned for the Laing Art Solo Award. Cheung's works are in international public and private collections including the Hirshhorn Museum, Whitworth Museum, ASU Art Museum, UBS Collection and Yale Centre for British Art.
