Luke Chueh's Avengers Assemble

Avengers Assemble... Low Brow style, thanks to acclaimed cult artist Luke Chueh.

Earlier in June, we have did an interview with acclaimed cult artist Luke Chueh to commemorate the release of The Art of Luke Chueh: Bearing the Unbearable, the first monograph collecting the first seven years of of the Los Angeles-based artist. As mentioned in our earlier review of the coffee table art book, the work of Chueh is indeed captivating and often contained more dimensions than one in repeated viewings.

Here, Chueh gave his minimalist take on Marvel Studios' The Avengers with a literal rendering of the phrase, "Avengers Assemble".

THE AVENGER (ASSEMBLED)
Acrylic and Ink on Paper
9" x 12"
2012


In the artist's own words:

For this painting, I simply assembled the trademark elements of each character. Black Widow's wristbands and pistols, Captain America's Shield, Hawkeye's bow & arrows, Hulk's green body, Iron Man's helmet and energy source, Nick Fury's eye patch, and Thor's hammer.
When discussing this painting, I jokingly say 'The act of assembling all these pieces into one character illustrates the idea of "teamwork" as seven characters become one "Avenger" :-P.'
Upon further reflection, I hate to say it, but I actually agree with this assessment, despite how goofy it sounds.
