On September 1st, Andenken Gallery in Amsterdam will debut 'Just Passing Through', a collection of new works by Los Angeles based artist Deedee Cheriel. In this exhibit, Deedee's paintings reflect the skateboarding and indie music scene she grew up in. Influenced by feminist punk iconography and East India Temple imagery her style has a voice of it’s own. Birds on bikes and growling bears are the anthropomorphic characters that find comedic remedy to their lighthearted dramas. Living with a sick boyfriend, trying to connect with girlfriends of different racial and social standings, and overcoming difficult life situations are the themes addressed in her new work. If you're in Amsterdam this weekend, be sure to check out the artist's work in person.
