We have a brand new artist series for Spring featuring Nalini 'Deedee' Cheriel. As a visual artist she started out creating record covers and T-shirts for the Oregon music scene in the early '90s. Now residing in Los Angeles, Cheriel's work explores narratives that recognize the urgency and conflict in our continuing attempts to connect to the world. With influences derived from such opposites as East Indian temple imagery, punk rock, and her Pacific Northwest natural environment, her images are indications of how we try to connect ourselves to others and how these satirical and heroic efforts are episodes of compassion and discomfort. Check out Deedee's artist series on the OBEY US site by clicking below.
We were also fortunate enough to film at her studio in Highland Park. Click below to check out our video feature with DeeDee, where she talks about her experiences of being surrounded by nature as a kid, skateboarding culture and the magical realism which heavily influence her artwork.
