Luke Luokun Cheng is an artist and digital designer working in diverse media including installation, imagery, and performance. Through his perspective as a queer Chinese immigrant in the U.S., he magnifies private poignancies to tease apart the boundaries of intimacy and alienation within global power structures. He draws from his experience designing social software to shape his pieces as sites of interactive possibility, while his background in large-format film portraiture informs a quiet, deliberate approach. He is a 2020 recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant, was a member of NEW INC, and has exhibited at Assembly Room in New York. He holds a BSE from Princeton University and was born in Jiangxi, China. He grew up and currently resides in Virginia.
