Gordon Cheung was born 1975 in London. He studied painting at Central St Martins College of Art and at the Royal College of Art, London from where he graduated in 2001.
Cheung explains that the tulip bulb used to create the 3D printed series (Tulippomania) refers to the Rothschild bulb, in so much as bulb is named after one of the most powerful banking family dynasties in history and therefore a principle player in spreading Capitalism globally.
He has exhibited extensively and in 2005 was notably part of the The British Art Show 6 which toured the U.K and The John Moores Painting Prize in 2006. He was commissioned for the Laing Art Solo Award in 2007. Cheung’s works are in international public and private collections including the Hirshhorn Museum, Whitworth Museum, ASU Art Museum and UBS Collection.
